1 Sorrow here is not a stranger,
Care appears with ev’ry day;
And I meet with win and danger
As I walk the pilgrim’s way.
Saviour, keep thy cross before me,
Thus by faith thy presence show;
Saviour keep its shadow o’er me,
While a pilgrim here below:
Saviour keep its shadow o’er me,
While a pilgrim, while a pilgrim here below.

2 Storms in life are oft prevailing,
And the shadows often fall;
Still, with Christian zeal unfailing,
I would meet and brave them all.
Saviour, be a Rock to hide me,
And to me thy grace bestow;
Savior, be a Star to guide me,
While a pilgrim here below :
Savior, be a Star to guide me,
While a pilgrim, while a pilgrim here below.

3 Hope and peace in thee possessing,
By the Word that is divine;
And thy holy name confessing,
Faith is in this song of mine.
Saviour, help me tell thy story,
Thus the precious seed to sow;
Saviour, help me sing thy glory,
While a pilgrim here below.
