Representative Text

1 We are pilgrims and strangers below,
Surrounded with sorrow and care,
To the land of sweet promise we go,
Our treasures and hearts are now there.

Refrain:
O, come, will you come and go with us there?
O, come, will you come, our pleasures to share?
Your friends are now waiting; oh, why will you roam?
O, come and go with us, and greet them at home.

2 To Canaan’s fair climes we are bound,
So beautiful, healthful and pure,
Where pleasures undying abound,
And friendships forever endure. [Refrain]

3 How sweet it will be to be there,
With Jesus and friends, evermore;
Away from all sorrow and care,
In our home on the evergreen shore. [Refrain]
