2138. Happy Little Pilgrims

1. Happy little pilgrims,
We should ne’er be sad;
For the love of Jesus
Makes His children glad.

Happy little pilgrims,
Going on our way,
To a land of beauty,
Singing all the day.

2. In that land so lovely,
Everything is bright,
There will be no sorrow,
There will be no night. [Refrain]

3. Not alone we journey
To the mansions fair;
Jesus is our Shepherd;
He will lead us there. [Refrain]
