1. Pilgrim Stranger

1. Go, ye humble pilgrim stranger,
Thro' this world of woe,
He is, though so meek and lowly,
More than all beside.
Don't forget that God above you,
Hath a gracious heart,
He will never cease to love you,
Or to take your part.

2. If your way is dark and lonely,
He will be your guide,
He is, though so meek and lowly,
More than all beside.
When the world in arms assail you,
And your courage fail,
Let Him fight your battle for you,
And you will prevail.

3. When discouraged and forsaken,
Run to Him in pray'r,
Never has been one o'er-taken,
Who resorted there.
When the storms of life are beating,
Hard upon your head,
God will hide you, He is pleading,
"Be ye not afraid."

4. If you choose to find a stranger,
Put Him in the way,
Tell him how to flee the danger,
While it is called day.
Tell him there's a precious fountain,
Flowing free for all,
Jesus Christ, on Calvary's mountain,
Paid for Adam's fall.

5. Tell him that above a brother
There's a Savior's love,
If on earth he has no other,
There's a Friend above.
If he needs your help and kindness,
Don't withhold your hand,
Always of this be reminded,
He's your fellow man.
