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.

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]
