Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Let Us Cheer the Weary Traveler

I'll take my gospel trumpet

Tune: [I'll take my gospel trumpet]
Published in 4 hymnals

Full Text

Let us cheer the weary traveler,
Cheer the weary traveler,
Let us cheer the weary traveler,
Along the heavenly way.

1 I'll take my gospel trumpet,
And I'll begin to blow,
And if my Saviour helps me,
I'll blow wherever I go. [Refrain]

2 And if you meet with crosses
And trials on the way,
Just keep your trust in Jesus,
And don't forget to pray. [Refrain]
