81. The Pilgrims’ Promise

1 There’s a Friend for friendless pilgrims
Above the bright blue sky,
A Friend who never changes;
Whose love will never die.
Unlike our friends by nature,
Who change with changing years
This friend is always worthy
The precious name he bears.
This friend is always worthy
The precious name he bears.

2 There’s a rest for weary pilgrims
Above the bright blue sky,
Who love the blessed Saviour,
And to their Father cry;
A rest from ev’ry trouble,
From sin and hunger free.
There ev’ry weary pilgrim
Shall rest eternally.
There ev’ry weary pilgrim
Shall rest eternally.

3 There’s a home for homeless pilgrims
Above the bright blue sky,
Where Jesus reigns in glory,
A home of peace and joy.
No home on earth is like it,
Nor can with it compare;
For ev’ry one is happy,
Nor can be happier there.
For ev’ry one is happy,
Nor can be happier there.

4 There’s a crown for faithful pilgrims
Above the bright blue sky,
And all who look to Jesus
Shall wear it by and by;
A crown of brightest glory,
Which he shall sure bestow,
On all who love the Saviour,
And walk with him below.
On all who love the Saviour,
And walk with him below.
