1 A pilgrim and a stranger,
I journey on my way;
I seek thro’ tribulation
The light of perfect day.
Thro’ thickest gloom and darkness,
I see a gleam afar;
It beckons ever upward,
The bright and morning star.

Refrain:
That bright, bright, star,
By faith I see;
Behold Him high in glory,
To intercede for me.

2 Tho’ oft my feet are weary,
So long and rough the road,
One stands beside me, patient,
And shares my heavy load.
My faith can never fail me,
The while I see afar,
In all its radiant beauty,
The bright and morning star. [Refrain]

3 My beacon never fails me,
Tho’ long and drear the night,
Tho’ clouds around me darken,
They can not hide its light.
Courage, the day is dawning,
For lo! I see afar,
In all its radiant beauty,
The bright and morning star. [Refrain]

4 It guides me to the city,
With twelve foundations fair,
Whose wall is purest jasper,
And set with jewels rare.
A grand untempled city,
Revealed to John of old,
Whose gates of pearl are numbered,
And streets are paved with gold. [Refrain]
