++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  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.

2.  Now with singing and praise,

let us spend all the days,

by our heavenly Father bestowed,

while his grace we receive

from his bounty, and live

to the honor and glory of God.

3.  For the glory we were

first created to share,

both the nature

and kingdom divine!

Now created again

that our lives may remain,

throughout time and eternity thine.

4.  We with thanks do approve

the design of that love

which hath joined us to Jesus’ Name;

so united in heart,

let us nevermore part,

till we meet at the feast of the Lamb.

5.  Hallelujah we sing,

to our Father and King,

and his rapturous praises, repeat:

to the Lamb that was slain,

hallulujah again,

sing, all heaven, and fall at his feet.
