    Come, Ye Children of the Lord

    Exultantly

    1. Come, ye children of the Lord,

    Let us sing with one accord.

    Let us raise a joyful strain

    To our Lord who soon will reign

    On this earth when it shall be

    Cleansed from all iniquity,

    When all men from sin will cease,

    And will live in love and peace.

    2. Oh, how joyful it will be

    When our Savior we shall see!

    When in splendor he’ll descend,

    Then all wickedness will end.

    Oh, what songs we then will sing

    To our Savior, Lord, and King!

    Oh, what love will then bear sway

    When 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 therein

    Shall in love and beauty dwell;

    Then with joy each heart will swell.
