The Traveler 108b

Tune: Arranged by Absalom Ogletree, 1868
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Meter: 7s (7,7,7,7)
Travíler haste, the night comes on,
Many a shining hour is gone;
Storm is gathíring in the West,
And you are so far from home.

Chorus:

O come, travíler, haste away,
You must walk while it is day;
O come, travíler, haste away,
You will find in Christ the way.

Far from home thy footsteps stray;
Christ the life and Christ the way,
Christ the light, yon setting sun,
Ere the noon is scarce begun.

(Chorus)
