Hymn 381

Play music

1 O happy band of pilgrims,
If onward ye will tread
With Jesus as your Fellow
To Jesus as your Head!
2 O happy if ye labour
As Jesus did for men:
O happy if ye hunger
As Jesus hungered then!
3 For you a cross he carried
When for your sin he died;
For you a crown he weareth
In honour to abide.
4 The faith by which ye see him,
The hope in which ye yearn,
The love that through all troubles
To him alone will turn:
5 What are they but forerunners
To lead you to his sight?
What are they but the earnest
Of promised morning light?
