The Olive Leaf-145, Happy Souls


Note that the book from which this song was taken is currently out of print.

1. O happy souls, how fast you go,
And leave me far behind!
Don't stay for me, for now I see,
The Lord is good and kind;
Go on, go on, my soul says go;
And I'll come after you.
Though I'm behind, I feel inclined
To sing hosana too.

2. God give you strength your race to run.
And keep your footsteps right;
Though fast you go and I go slow,
You are not out of sight.
When you get to that world above
And all God's glory see,
On that bright shore, your journey's o'er,
Then you look out for me.
