I Am A Christian Pilgrim


I am a Christian pilgrim,
And journey to a land,
Where, robed in royal garments,
The Lord’s anointed stand;
In Jesus’ blood, these saved ones
Have wash’d their garments white,
And soon I hope to join them,
In yonder land of light.

Refrain:
I feel like going on, brother,
I feel like going on,
I’m on my way to Zion,
And I feel like going on.

Why should I be discouraged,
Tho’ oft the sky appears
All veiled in clouds and darkness,
And I have doubts and fears?
My Lord and my Redeemer,
While he my leader is,
Will guide my steps in safety,
What want I more than this? [Refrain]

I meet with many troubles,
And trials on the way,
But when I look to Jesus,
And in the spirit pray,
He gives me grace and courage
And helps my soul along;
And so I go rejoicing,
And sing my pilgrim song. [Refrain]
