Hymn 82
1. Come all ye humble saints of God,
Who're bound to Zion's happy land,
You who are cleansed in Jesus' blood,
And join the upright holy band:

2. Far in the West ye must encamp,
Where swift Missouri's waters roll,
There you shall be as burning lamps,
To light the earth from pole to pole.

3. Now Jesus calls you by his word,
E'en as a shepherd calls his sheep,
To flee the famine, fire and sword,
And like the roe from dangers leap.

4. For soon, yea, very soon, the earth
Shall know the vengeance of her God;
All nations feel a dreadful dearth,
And shrink and perish neath the rod.

5. But there, in Zion's happy land,
Is peace, and joy, and lasting rest;
Protected by the Savior's hand,
None are afraid, and none molest.
