HYMN 566

H.C 367 t. C. App. 3.6 8S (FE 593)

1.  LEADER of faithful souls and guide 

     Of all that travel to the sky 

     Come, and with us, e’en us abide 

     Who would on Thee alone rely 

     On Thee alone our spirits stay 

     While held in life’s uneven way.

2.  Stangers and pilgrims here below 

     This earth, we know, is not our place

     But hasten through the vale of woe 

     And, restless to behold Thy face 

     Swift to our heavenly country move 

     Our everlasting home above.

3.  Through Thee, who all our sins hast borne 

     Freely and graciously forgiven

     With songs to Zion we return 

     Contending for our native heaven

     That palace of our glorious King 

     We find it nearer while we sing.

4.  Raised by the breath of love divine

     We urge our way with strength renew’d 

     The church of the first-born to join 

     We travel to the mount of God

     With joy upon our heads arise

     And meet our Captain in the skies.  Amen
