Lyrics

Look, pilgrim, weary of sorrow,
Look, be not tempted to sin;
Look to the blissful tomorrow;
Look to the home you may win.

Refrain

Look! angels surround thee;
Look, forward, faint not;
Look! press on thy journey,
Look upward to God.

Look to the Heaven that’s o’er thee,
Look to the home upon high;
Look to the crown that’s before thee,
Look! to forget every sigh.

Refrain

Look now, to leave all thy sadness,
Look now, to leave all thy sin;
Look now, to enter with gladness,
Look now, that mansion within.

Refrain

Look, soon you’ll pass o’er the portal,
Look, soon you’ll meet with the blest;
Look, soon the blissful immortal,
Look! soon the heavenly rest.
