Representative Text

1 Sing on, ye joyful pilgrims,
Nor think the moments long;
My faith is heav'nward rising
With ev'ry tuneful song;
Lo! on the mount of blessing,
The glorious mount, I stand;
And looking over Jordan,
I see the promised land.

Sing on, O blissful music!
With ev'ry note you raise
My heart is filled with rapture,
My soul is lost in praise;
Sing on, O blissful music!
With ev'ry note you raise
My heart is filled with rapture,
My soul is lost in praise.

2 Sing on, ye joyful pilgrims,
While here on earth we stay;
Let songs of home and Jesus
Beguile each fleeting day;
Sing on the grand old story
Of His redeeming love,
The everlasting chorus
That fills the realms above. [Chorus]

3 Sing on, ye joyful pilgrims,
The time will not be long,
Till in our Father's kingdom
We swell a nobler song,
Where those we love are waiting
To greet us on the shore,
We'll meet beyond the river,
Where surges roll no more. [Chorus]
