2  Onward we go, for still we hear them singing,
"Come, weary souls, for Jesus bids you come;" And through the dark, its echoes sweetly ringing, The music of the gospel leads us home.
Angels of Jesus, Angels of light, Singing to welcome the pilgrims of the night/
3  Far, far away, like bells at evening pealing,
The voice of Jesus sounds o'er land and sea; And laden souls, by thousands meekly stealing, Kind Shepherd, turn their weary steps to Thee.
4  Rest comes at length: though life be long and dreary,
The day must dawn, and darksome night be past; Faith's journeys end in welcomes to the weary,
And heaven, the heart's true home, will come at last.
Rev. Frederick W. Faber, i8ji
