Pilgrims of Night

Verse 1:
Hark, hark! my soul! angelic songs are swelling
O’er earth’s green fields and ocean’s wave-beat shore;
How sweet the truth those blessed strains are telling
Of that new life when sin shall be no more.

Refrain:
Angels of Jesus, angels of light,
Singing to welcome the Pilgrims of the night,
Singing to welcome the Pilgrims of the night.

Verse 2:
Far, far away, like bells at evening pealing,
The voice of Jesus sounds o’er land and sea;
And laden souls by thousands meekly stealing,
Kind Shepherd, turn their weary steps to Thee.

Verse 3:
Onward we go, for still we hear them singing,
“Come, weary souls, for Jesus bids you come;”
And thro’ the dark, its echoes sweetly ringing,
The music of the Gospel leads us home.

F.W. Faber/Geo. C. Stebbins
