O Happy Band Of Pilgrims Lyrics

O happy band of pilgrims,
If onward you will tread,
With Jesus as your Fellow,
To Jesus as your Head.

The cross that Jesus carried
He carried as your due;
The crown that Jesus weareth
He weareth it for you.

The faith by which ye see Him,
The hope in which ye yearn,
The love that through all troubles
To Him alone will turn.

What are they but forerunners
To lead you to his sight,
The longed-for distant dawning
Of uncreated light?

The trials that beset you,
The sorrows you endure,
Are known to Christ your Saviour,
Whose perfect grace will cure.

O happy band of pilgrims,
Look upward to the skies,
Where such a light affliction
Shall win you such a prize.

Meter 76 76. Lyrics by St Joseph the Hymnographer, translated by John Mason Neale (1818 – 1866). Public Domain.
