  1. 1. I’m a pilgrim, I’m a stranger
    Cast upon the rocky shore
    Of a land where deathly danger
    Surges with a sullen roar,
    Oft despairing, oft despairing,
    Lest I reach my home no more.
  2. 2. Misty vapors rise before me.
    Scarcely can I see the way.
    Clouds of darkest hue hang o’er me,
    And I’m apt to go astray
    With the many, with the many
    That are now the vulture’s prey.
  3. 3. O my Father, I entreat thee,
    Let me see thy beck’ning hand;
    And when straying, may I meet thee
    Ere I join the silent band.
    Guide me, Father, guide me, Father,
    Safely to the promised land.
  4. Text: Hans Henry Petersen, 1835–1909
    Music: Leroy J. Robertson, 1896–1971
