Representative Text

1 Courage! fellow pilgrim,
Tho’ the path be rough,
Jesus is thy Leader
Is not that enough?
Tho’ the way be thorny,
Desolate and drear,
Jesus will uphold thee,
He is ever near.

Refrain:
Courage! fellow pilgrim,
Tho’ the path be rough,
Jesus is thy Leader
Is not that enough?

2 Courage! fellow trav’ler,
Over life’s rough sea,
Jesus in the vessel
Pilot true will be;
He will bid the billows
Sin into a calm,
He will in the haven
Shelter thee from harm. [Refrain]

3 Courage! fellow suff’rer,
Tho’ the pain be sharp,
Jesus knows its anguish,
Jesus felt its smart;
He can still its throbbing,
He can say, “Depart,”
Strengthen thee in weakness,
Animate thy heart. [Refrain]

4 Courage! courage, Christian!
Whatsoe’er thy lot,
God the Lord has promised
To forsake thee not;
Sooner shall the heavens
And earth pass away,
Than the soul forsaken,
Who makes God his stay. [Refrain]
