Saintís Request 286t

Tune: John S. Terry, 1850
Lyrics: Hallís New Collection, 1804
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Young people, all attention give,
And hear what I shall say:
I wish your souls with Christ to live
In everlasting day.

Chorus:

I want you to go to that bright world,
To dwell with saints forever there.

There you may drink in endless joy,
And reign with Christ your King,
In His glad notes your souls employ,
And hallelujahs sing.

(Chorus)
