Come away to the skies, my beloved, arise
And rejoice in the day thou wast born;
On this festival day, come exulting away,
And with singing to Zion return.

We have laid up our love and our treasures above,
Though our bodies continue below;
The redeemed of the Lord shall remember His Word,
And with singing to paradise go.

Hallelujah we sing to our Father and King,
And His rapturous praises repeat:
To the Lamb that was slain, Hallelujah again,
Sing all heaven and fall at His feet.


Musical offering for the tenth day of Christmas

What Child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary’s lap is sleeping,
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear; for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
The cross be borne for me, for you;
Hail, hail, the Word made flesh,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
Come, peasant, king, to own Him.
The King of kings salvation brings;
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.
Raise, raise the song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby;
Joy, joy, for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Good morning, brother pilgrim,
What, bound for Canaan’s coast?
March you toward Jerusalem,
To join the heavenly host?
Pray, wherefore are you smiling
While tears run down your face?
We soon shall cease from toiling,
And reach that heavenly place.

To Canaan’s coast we’ll hasten,
To join the heavenly throng;
Hark! from the banks of Jordan,
How sweet the pilgrims’ song!
Their Jesus they are viewing,
By faith we see Him too;
We smile and weep and praise Him,
And on our way pursue.

With streams of consolation,
We’re filled as with new wine;
We die to transient pleasures,
And live to things divine.
We sink in holy raptures
While viewing things above;
All glory to my Savior,
My heart is full of love.

Through all the world below
God is seen all around;
Search hills and valleys through,
There He’s found.
The growing of the corn,
The lily and the thorn,
The pleasent and forlorn,
All declare God is there.
In meadows dressed in green, God is seen.

See springing waters rise,
Fountains flow, rivers run;
The mist that veils the sky
Hides the sun.
Then down the rain doth pour,
The ocean it doth roar
And beat upon the shore,
And all praise, in their ways,
The God who ne’er declines His designs.

The sun with all his rays
Speaks of God as he flies;
The comet in her blaze,
“God!” she cries.
The shining of the stars,
The moon when she appears,
His awful name declare;
See them fly through the sky,
And join the solemn sound all around.

Come and taste along with me
Consolation flowing free
From the Father’s wealthy throne
Sweeter than the honeycomb.

I’ll praise God and you’ll praise God
And we’ll all praise God together;
We’ll praise the Lord for the work that He has done,
And we’ll bless His name forever.

All that come with free good will
Make the banquet sweeter still;
Now I go to mercy’s door
Asking for a little more.

I’ll praise God and you’ll praise God
And we’ll all praise God together;
We’ll praise the Lord for the work that He has done,
And we’ll bless His name forever.

Goodness running like a stream
Through the new Jerusalem
By a constant breaking forth
Sweetens earth and heaven both.

I’ll praise God and you’ll praise God
And we’ll all praise God together;
We’ll praise the Lord for the work that He has done,
And we’ll bless His name forever.

Oh return, ye sons of grace;
Turn and see God’s smiling face.
Hark! He calls backsliders home;
Then from Him no longer roam.

I’ll praise God and you’ll praise God
And we’ll all praise God together;
We’ll praise the Lord for the work that He has done,
And we’ll bless His name forever.

Hark, I hear the harps eternal
Ringing on the farther shore,
As I near those swollen waters
With their deep and solemn roar.

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Glory to the great I AM!

And my soul, though stained with sorrow,
Fading as the light of day,
Passes swiftly o’er those waters,
To the city far away.

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Glory to the great I AM!

Souls have crossed before me, saintly,
To that land of perfect rest;
And I hear them singing faintly
In the mansions of the blest.

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Glory to the great I AM!
