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.
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.
We with thanks do approve the design of that love
which hath joined us to Jesus' Name;
so united in heart, let us never more part,
till we meet at the feast of the Lamb.
