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,
Ev'ry thing is bright;
There will be no sorrow,
There will be no night. [Chorus]

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