Full Text

1 Pilgrim of Jesus, o’er life’s troubled sea,
Courage, and onward pursue;
A crown of rejoicing is waiting for thee,
Ever keep heaven in view.

Ever keep heaven in view,
Ever keep heaven in view;
Courage, my brother, right onward pursue,
Ever keep heaven in view.

2 Pilgrim of Jesus, what saddens thy brow?
Are not His promises true?
How needless thy sorrow, He’s bidding thee now,
Ever keep heaven in view. [Refrain]

3 Pilgrim of Jesus, oh, lift up thy head,
Ask and thy strength He’ll renew;
And, while in the footprints of Jesus you tread,
Ever keep heaven in view. [Refrain]

4 Pilgrim of Jesus, that Eden above
Long has been waiting for you;
And soon thou shalt reach thy fair mansion of love,
Ever keep heaven in view. [Refrain]
