1 Weary pilgrim why this sadness?
Why 'mid sorrow's scenes decline?
The trial strange, brings you and gladness;
For all things shall yet be thine!
O yes, all things shall yet be thine!
2 Earth anew, with robe of glory,
Shall rejoice in hill and vale;
And sweetest harpings tell the story
Of the love that could not fail;
O yes, the love that could not fail.
3 Thou shalt range the fields of pleasure,
Where joy's gushing songs arise;
Thou shalt have all thy well-stores treasure,
In the new earth, paradise;
Yes, in the new earth, paradise.
4 Weary pilgrim, leave thy sadness;
To Mount Zion thou art come!
Now swell thy songs of joyful gladness,
And rejoice in thy blest home;
Thine own, and Jesus' heavenly home.
