Lyrics

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.

Lyrics

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. We have laid up our love
And our treasure above,
Though our bodies continue below,
The redeemed of the Lord
Will remember his word,
And with singing to paradise go.

3. 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.

4. There, O! there at his feet,
We shall all likewise meet,
And be parted in body no more;
We shall sing to our lyres,
With the heavenly choirs,
And our Savior in glory adore.

5. 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.
