Representative Text

1 We are little pilgrims,
We are strangers here,
We are hast'ning onward
To our Home most dear;
All that stays our progress
We will cast aside,
Sinful lusts and passions,
Evil tho'ts and pride.

2 Ofttimes we are weary,
Oftentimes in pain;
But the hope of Heaven
Cheers our souls again.
Grief will there be rapture,
Toil will there be rest;
Each day brings us nearer
To our Home most blest.
