128. I'm a Pilgrim

1 I’m a pilgrim, and I’m a stranger,
I can tarry but a night;
Do not detain me, for I am going
To where the fountains are ever flowing;
Do not detain me, for I am going
To where the fountains are ever flowing.

Refrain:
I’m a pilgrim, and I’m a stranger;
I can tarry I can tarry but a night;
I’m a pilgrim, and I’m a stranger;
I can tarry I can tarry but a night.

2 Of the city to which I journey,
My Redeemer is the Light;
There is no sorrow, nor any sighing,
Nor any tears there, nor any dying;
There is no sorrow, nor any sighing,
Nor any tears there, nor any dying. [Refrain]

3 There the sunbeams are ever shining,—
O my longing heart is there;
Here in this country, so dark and dreary,
I long have wandered, forlorn and weary;
Here in this country, so dark and dreary,
I long have wandered, forlorn and weary. [Refrain]
