1 Now let our voices join
To raise a sacred song;
Ye pilgrims! in Jehovah's ways,
With music pass along.
2 See--flowers of paradise,
In rich profusion, spring;
The sun of glory gilds the path,
And dear companions sing.
3 See--Salem's golden spires,
In beauteous prospect, rise;
And brighter crowns than mortals wear,
Which sparkle through the skies.
4 All honor to his name,
Who marks the shining way,--
To him who leads the pilgrims on
To realms of endless day.
