1. Tho’ rough may be thy path, and long,
Remember! that with grief as sore,
And burdens larger far than thine,
Some heart has gone this way before.

Refrain
Trust then in Christ! His arm will guide
Each faithful one thro’ Jordan’s tide;
Hope on! the race will soon be past
And victory will come at last.

2. Tho’ dark may be the gath’ring night;
Tho’ loud and long the storm may roar;
Take courage! thou art not the first,
Some heart has gone this way before. [Refrain]

3. Some heart has gone this way before,
Some feet have scaled this dizzy height;
Some yearning eyes have pierced the gloom,
And seen the dawn of Heaven’s light. [Refrain]

4. So thou, dear pilgrim, too, canst go;
Some day thy trials will be o’er;
For unto rest and peace beyond,
Some heart has gone this way before. [Refrain]
