Go On Ye Pilgrims


Go on, Ye Pilgrims, While Below
In the sure paths of peace,
Determined nothing else to know
But Jesus and His grace.

Observe your Leader, follow Him,
He in this world has been
Often reviled, but like a Lamb,
Did ne’er revile again.

O take the pattern he has giv’n
And love your enemies;
And learn the only way to heav’n
In self-denial lies.

, Remember, you must watch and pray,
While` journ’ying on the road;
Lest you should fall out by the way
And wound the cause of God.

Contend for nothing but the truth
That feeds th’ immortal mind
For fruitless leaves, no more dispute
But leave them to the wind.

Go on rejoicing night and day,
Your crown is yet before;
Defy the trails of your way.
The storms will soon be o’er.
