Go on, you pilgrims, while be-low,

In the sure path of peace,

De-ter-mined noth-ing else to know

But Jesus and his grace.

Observe your leader, follow him:

He through this world has been,

Often reviled; but like a lamb,

Did ne'er revile again.

O! take the pattern he has given,

And love your enemies;

And learn the only way to heaven

Through self-denial lies.

Remember you must watch and pray

While journeying on the road,

Lest you should fall out by the way

And wound the cause of God.

Contend for nothing but the fruit

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 trials of the way,

The storm will soon be o'er.

Soon we shall reach the promised land,

With all the ransomed race,

And join with all the glorious band

To sing redeeming grace.

There shall we meet to sing God's praise,

And all his wonders tell,

And triumph in redeeming grace;

So, brethren, fare you well.
