Representative Text

1 Fellow voyager, cease complaining,
Look beyond this vale of tears;
See the haven you are nearing,
Quiet all your rising fears;
Should this world prove dark and dreary,
And you here no pleasure find,
Look beyond the clouds that near thee,
Look to God, who is so kind.

Refrain:
Cheer up, then, oh, fellow mortal,
Never utter one complaint;
Never will you pass the heav’nly portals,
If you weary or grow faint.

2 Let not earthly care and sorrow
Darken all life’s pathway o’er;
There will dawn a brighter morrow,
As you near the heav’nly shore;
Hear ye not those angel voices,
Calling you to follow on?
See the happy throng rejoicing,
As you tread the path alone. [Refrain]
