lyrics

A pilgrim and a stranger,
I journey here below;
Far distant is my country,
The home to which I go.
Here I must toil and travail,
Oft weary and oppressed,
But there my God shall lead me
To everlasting rest.

There I shall dwell forever,
No more a stranger guest,
With all Thy blood-bought children
In everlasting rest,
The pilgrim toils forgotten,
The pilgrim conflicts o'er,
All earthly griefs behind us,
Eternal joys before!

So I must hasten forward, 
Thank God, the end will come!
This land of passing shadows
Is not my destined home
Oh everlasting city,
Jerusalem, descend!
There Jesus reigns in splendor
And glory without end. 
Oh everlasting city, 
Jerusalem, descend!
There Jesus reigns in splendor
And glory without end. 

Oh glory without end
Oh glory without end
Oh glory without end (Jesus, he’s my)
Glory without end!

Jane Borthwick, 1666,
Tr. Paul Gerhardt, 1858.
