Come, Heaven-Bound Pilgrims ~ Hymn

Come, Heaven-Bound Pilgrims

Come, Heaven-bound pilgrims, and join in God’s praise,
Come seek now His blessing and learn of His ways,
In humble devotion bow low at His feet,
In true spirit worship, His favor entreat.

Let each one consider the price we have cost,
Let each one be burdened with souls that are lost,
And seek that infilling of pow’r from above,
That fits us for service and fills us with love.

Remember each other in true, fervent prayer,
Pray too for God’s servants that they may declare
The message of truth with an anxious desire,
That all be enkindled with heavenly fire.

O gracious Redeemer, be with us we pray,
Breathe on us Thy Spirit to show us the way,
And fill us with goodness, with peace and delight,
That all to Thy glory may shine as a light.

Words: John M. Shenk. 1902

  1. Both hymn and painting reminded me of a very favorite book, “Pilgrim’s Progress.” May we all be faithful pilgrims!

  2. What wonderful words…and ” fill us with goodness, with peace and delight, That all to Thy glory may shine as a light”.
