Representative Text

1 We are children of a King,
Heav'nly King, Heav'nly King,
We are children of a King,
Singing as we journey;
Jesus Christ, our guard and guide,
Bids us, nothing terrified,
Follow closely at His side,
Singing as we journey.

2 We are trav'ling to our home,
Blessed home, Blessed home,
We are trav'ling to our home,
Singing as we journey;
Tow'rd a city out of sight,
Where will fall no shade of night,
For our Saviour is its light,
Singing as we journey.

3 Full of joy we onward go,
Heav'nward go, Heav'nward go,
Full of joy we onward go,
Singing as we journey;
Singing all the journey thro'
Singing hearts are brave and true,
Singing till our home we view,
Singing as we journey.
