Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

The Pilgrims' mutual Conference

Hail! happy Pilgrims, whence came ye

Published in 9 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Hail! happy Pilgrims, whence came ye
And whither are you bound?
Who from the land of Egypt flee,
'Tis Cana'n we have found.

2 How come ye first to walk this way?
Were you alarm'd with fear?
A school-master appear'd one day,
With countenance severe:

3 His presence struck our hearts with awe;
His eyes appear'd like flame;
I am said he, the holy law;
And from mount Sinai came.

4 Then lo, our sentence he declar'd
Was everlasting death:
For 'till he had his full demand,
We were expos'd to wrath.

5 At last a messenger of peace,
Everlasting by name,
Appear'd and gave us sweet release,
From that devouring flame.

6 He pointed to the lamb of God,
In that distressing day,
And said, behold his precious blood,
That takes your guilt away.

7 Thus were we from our bondage freed
And set at liberty;
Come then dear brethren, well agreed,
For thus redeem'd were we.

8 Come let us then together walk,
Together let us sing:
Be this the subject of our talk,
To praise the Lamb our King.
