We Are Ransomed By A King


We are ransomed by a King, and His mandate we receive,
From the city of despair now to fly;
Let us rise at once and go, that we all may enter in
At the lovely Palace Gate by and by.

Refrain:
Home, sweet, happy, happy home,
Home, sweet,
Happy, happy home;
What a shout of joy will ring,
When we hail our Saviour King,
At the lovely Palace Gate by and by.

We are ransomed by a King, we must follow His command,
And obedient to His word we must be;
In His royal march of faith there are many foes to meet
Ere the lovely Palace Gate we shall see. [Refrain]

We must overcome the world with the mighty sword of truth,
We must bear the standard on till we die;
Then if faithful to the last, we shall enter into rest
At the lovely Palace Gate by and by. [Refrain]
