Pilgrimís Farewell 185

Tune: Harmony of Harmony, 1802
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Psalmodist's Companion, 1793
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Farewell, my friends, I must be gone,
I have no home or stay with you;
Iíll take my staff and travel on
íTill I a better world can view.

Chorus:

Iíll march to Canaanís land,
Iíll land on Canaanís shore.
Where pleasures never end,
And troubles come no more.
Farewell, my loving friends, farewell.

Farewell, my friends, time rolls along,
Nor waits for mortal care or bliss;
Iíll leave you here and travel on,
íTill I arrive where Jesus is.

(Chorus)
