reminded every day,
That Iím not here to stay.
Iím only a pilgrim passing through.
Like friends and loved ones gone on before,
Iím heading for Heavenís shore,
In that beautiful land beyond the blue!
As up lifeís mountain I climb,
I often have a difficult time.
Sometimes I almost stumble and fall.
However, when the path grows dim,
Jesus lets me lean on Him,
And Iím able to make it after all!
Yes, I know each step I make,
And ultimately each breath I take,
Is because of Godís wonderful grace!
And when I bid this world goodbye,
Thereís not doubt that I,
Will see my Saviour face to face!
Although my strength is almost gone,
I must travel on,
With my eyes on my eternal goal.
For at my journeyís end,
Jesus, my precious Friend,
Will receive my joyful soul!
