Pilgrim Song

This is one of my favorite hymns to sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir- set to such a gorgeous arrangement by Ryan Murphy.

It has extra special meaning to me now that I am headed to walk as a pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago Ingles route in 3 weeks and 3 days. ♥

(still running de-bugging posts on my blog. Hoping 3rd time is the charm)

Enjoy! – Holly

PILGRIM SONG – LYRICS

My brethren, I have found
a land that doth abound
with fruit as sweet as honey;
The more I eat, I find,
The more I am inclined
To shout and sing hosanna.

Chorus:
My soul doth long to go where I may fully know
The glory of my Savior;
And as I pass along I’ll sing the Christian song,
I’m going to live forever.

Perhaps you think me wild,
or simple as a child;
I am a child of glory;
I am born from above,
my soul is filled with love;
I love to tell the story.

Chorus
My soul now sits and sings
and practices its wings,
and contemplates the hour
When the messenger shall say,
‘Come quit this house of clay,
and with bright angels tower.’

Chorus
And as I pass along
I’ll sing the Christian song,
I’m going to live forever.

Forever.

(Pilgrim Song, arranged and adapted by Ryan Murphy)
