Come all ye faithful,

For a closer walk, Oh, God with thee.

Shall WE meet beyond the river?

What shall our answer be?

To the work, to the work,

Oh, the things that we may do, you and I,

Sowing the seed of the kingdom,

Bringing in the sheaves, By and by.

The half has never yet been told,

Of the wonderful love of Jesus.

Oh, thou fount of every blessing,

Savior like a shepherd lead us.

Oh, happy day, he leadeth me,

Won’t it be wonderful there?

From every stormy wind that blows?

In the beautiful garden of prayer?

The last mile of the way,

Hold to God’s unchanging hand,

Then face to face shall we behold him,

Just over in the glory land.
