Tonight I listened to David Phelp's rendition of this old song penned by Bill Gaither. As I heard the lyrics of the 2nd verse I thought how timely they are for all the Pilgrim Pals.
Click here to view this YouTube video and check out the lyrics for the 2nd verse and chorus below.
Journey on, fellow pilgrims, we're getting closer to home.
Here's the 2nd verse:
All the saints are getting restless,
They're not bound by shackles forged of earthly gold,
Since that day they knelt at Calvary,
They've been pilgrims ever wandering,
Just looking for a place to rest their souls.
This could be the dawning,
Of that grand and glorious day,
When the face of Jesus we behold,
Dream and hopes of all the ages
Are awaiting His returning,
And this could be the dawning of that day
- David, the pilgrim
