Our King Above the Sky 570

Tune: George L. Beck, 1927
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1707 (1st Half); 1719 (2nd Half)
Meter: Long Meter Double (8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8)
Life is the time to serve the Lord,
The time to seek the great reward,
And while the lamp holds out to burn,
The vilest sinner may return.
The God we worship here below,
Will guide us all until we die,
He is our Saviour as we go,
Our King above the sky.
Inscribed to the composer's friend, Sim Garner.
G. L. Beck dated his song January 28, 1927.
