1. Come, ye children of the Lord,Let us sing with one accord.Let us raise a joyful strainTo our Lord who soon will reignOn this earth when it shall beCleansed from all iniquity,When all men from sin will cease,And will live in love and peace.
2. Oh, how joyful it will beWhen our Savior we shall see!When in splendor he’ll descend,Then all wickedness will end.Oh, what songs we then will singTo our Savior, Lord, and King!Oh, what love will then bear swayWhen our fears shall flee away!
3. All arrayed in spotless white,We will dwell ’mid truth and light.We will sing the songs of praise;We will shout in joyous lays.Earth shall then be cleansed from sin.Ev’ry living thing thereinShall in love and beauty dwell;Then with joy each heart will swell.
