Say Now Ye Lovely Social Band – Hymn Lyric

Say now, ye lovely social band,
Who walk the way to Canaan’s land;
Ye who have fled from Sodom’s plain,
Say, would you now return again?

Have you just ventured to the field,
Well armed with helmet, sword and shield,
And shall the world, with dread alarms,
Compel you now to ground your arms?

Beware of pleasure’s siren song;
Alas! it cannot soothe you long;
It cannot quiet Jordan’s wave,
Nor cheer the dark and silent grave.

O let your thoughts delight to soar
Where earth and time shall be no more;
Explore by faith the heavenly fields,
And pluck the fruit that Canaan yields.

There see the glorious hosts on wing,
And hear the heavenly seraphs sing!
The shining ranks in order stand,
Or move like lightning at command.

Jehovah there reigns not alone,
The Savior shares his Father’s throne,
While angels circle round his seat,
And worship prostrate at his feet.

Behold! I see, among the rest,
A host in richer garments dressed;
A host that near his presence stands,
And palms of victory grace their hands.

Say, who are these I now behold,
With blood washed robes and crowns of gold?
This glorious host is not unknown
To him who sits upon the throne.

These are the followers of the Lamb;
From tribulation great they came;
And on the hill of sweet repose
They bid adieu to all their woes.

Soon on the wings of love you’ll fly,
To join them in that world on high;–
O make it now your chiefest care
The image of your Lord to bear.


Meaning of Say Now Ye Lovely Social Band

Oh, hello there, my lovely social band! Let’s take a moment to chat about something truly inspiring – our journey to Canaan’s land. Have you ever thought about how far we’ve come since we left behind the troubles of Sodom’s plain? It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Just picture it – we’ve armed ourselves with faith, hope, and love, ready to take on whatever challenges come our way. But, here’s the thing – as we walk this path, we might be tempted to turn back by the world’s distractions and fears. We have to stay strong and not let those things sway us from our true purpose.

I mean, who wants to be lured back by the empty promises of pleasure and worldly pursuits? They might seem enticing at first, but they can never bring us lasting peace or joy. Instead, let’s focus our thoughts on things above, where our true home awaits.

Can you imagine what it will be like in Canaan’s land? The beauty, the joy, the heavenly hosts singing praises to our Lord! It’s a place where every tear is wiped away, and every struggle is forgotten. We’ll be surrounded by fellow believers, all united in love and worship.

And speaking of our fellow believers, have you ever thought about the amazing company we’ll have in Canaan’s land? Just think about it – those who have gone before us, who have faced trials and tribulations with unwavering faith. They now stand before the throne of God, wearing robes washed in the blood of the Lamb and holding victorious palms.

Don’t you want to be among them? To soar on the wings of love and join in their heavenly chorus? It should be our greatest desire to bear the image of our Lord, to walk in His footsteps and share in His glory for all eternity.

So, my dear friends, let’s keep pressing on towards Canaan’s land. Let’s hold fast to our faith, hope, and love, knowing that a glorious future awaits us. And when we finally reach our heavenly home, we’ll be welcomed with open arms by our Savior and surrounded by the love of our fellow believers.

Say now, ye lovely social band, let’s keep our eyes on the prize and continue on our journey to Canaan’s land. For we are not alone in this adventure – we have each other, we have our faith, and most importantly, we have our Lord leading the way. Let’s walk together in unity and love, knowing that our destination is worth every step of the way.
