Where, O brother, are you going,
As you travel on today?
Are you one among the Mas­ter’s chosen few?
Are you seeking heav’nly mansions,
Free from sorrow or decay?
Then keep praying as your journey you pursue.


Keep praying and singing,
Every sorrow will vanish with the night;
Keep praying and singing,
And your path will be beau­ti­ful and bright.

Do the cares of life oppress you,
Are your sorrows multiplied?
Jesus said that He your every load would bear;
Only let Him share your burdens,
He will fill you with delight,
Talk it over with your blessèd Lord in prayer.


After work on earth is ended,
After vict’ry has been won,
We shall leave our cares and burdens all below;
Then we’ll soar away with Je­sus,
To be happy, glad and free,
And no sorrow we, in Hea­ven, e’er shall know.
