629 ~ O Happy Band of Pilgrims
O happy band of pilgrims, If onward ye will tread With Jesus as your fellow, To Jesus as your Head!
O happy if ye labor As Jesus did for men; O happy if ye hunger As Jesus hungered then!
The trials that beset you, The sorrows ye endure, The manifold temptations That death alone can cure,
What are they but His jewels Of right celestial worth? What are they but the ladder Set up to heaven on earth?
O happy band of pilgrims, Look upward to the skies, Where such a light affliction Shall win you such a prize!
