1 O happy band of pilgrims,
If onward ye will tread
With Jesus as your Fellow
To Jesus as your Head!
2 O happy if ye labour
As Jesus did for men;
O happy if ye hunger
As Jesus hungered then!
3 *The cross that Jesus carried
He carried as your due;
The crown that Jesus weareth,
He weareth it for you.
4 *The faith by which ye see him,
The hope in which ye yearn,
The love that through all troubles
To him alone will turn,
5 *What are they but forerunners
To lead you to his sight?
What are they save the effluence
Of uncreated light?
6 The trials that beset you,
The sorrows ye endure,
The manifold temptations
That death alone can cure,
7 What are they but his jewels
Of right celestial worth?
What are they but the ladder
Set up to heaven on earth?
8 O happy band of pilgrims,
Look upward to the skies,
Where such a light affliction
Shall win you such a prize!
