Come, let us join our friends above

Come, let us join our friends above
who have obtained the prize;
and on the eagle wings of love
to joys celestial rise:
let saints on earth together sing
with those whose work is done;
for all the servants of our King,
in earth and heaven, are one.

2. One family, we live in him;
one church, above, beneath,
though now divided by the stream,
the narrow stream, of death:
one army of the living God,
to his command we bow;
part of his host have crossed the flood
and part are crossing now.

3. Our spirits too shall quickly join
with theirs in glory crowned,
and shout to see our captain’s sign,
to hear his trumpet sound.
O that we now might grasp our guide!
O that the word were given!
Come, Lord of hosts, the waves divide,
and bring us safe to heaven.
