1. Does the journey seem long,The path rugged and steep?Are there briars and thorns on the way?Do sharp stones cut your feetAs you struggle to riseTo the heights thru the heat of the day?
2. Is your heart faint and sad,Your soul weary within,As you toil ’neath your burden of care?Does the load heavy seemYou are forced now to lift?Is there no one your burden to share?
3. Let your heart be not faintNow the journey’s begun;There is One who still beckons to you.So look upward in joyAnd take hold of his hand;He will lead you to heights that are new—
4. A land holy and pure,Where all trouble doth end,And your life shall be free from all sin,Where no tears shall be shed,For no sorrows remain.Take his hand and with him enter in.
