I'm a pilgrim and will walk with Jesus

Representative Text

1 I'm a pilgrim and will walk with Jesus,
In Him only shall our life be blest;
All the way from doubts and fears He frees us,
He alone keeps heart and mind at rest,
He alone keeps heart and mind at rest.

2 Seas, lands, vales, and mountains firm abiding,
Joyful I traverse, held by His hand;
But for this, my Savior's loving guiding,
I could never reach the promised land,
I could never reach the promised land.

3 When I sleep He keepeth guard around me;
When I wake He is my strength and stay;
He takes care that nothing shall confound me,
Leads me right when doubtful is the way,
Leads me right when doubtful is the way.

4 In Him ever would I be abiding,
In Him meat and drink and peace I have,
In His gracious arms my place of hiding;
Soul and body both His love will save,
Soul and body both His love will save.

5 Him I follow till my days are ended,
Till Himself shall call me home to rest;
In the Father's house there'll be extended
The glad welcome of a heavenly guest,
The glad welcome of a heavenly guest.
