While in this vale of sorrow,
I travel on in pain;
My heart is fixed on Jesus,
I hope the prize to gain.
But when I come to bid adieu,
To those I dearly love,
My heart is often melted,
It is the grief of love.

I hope you’ll all be faithful,
And walk the narrow road,
Hold to the hand of Jesus,
He’ll bear your heavy load.
He walked this way of grief and pain,
He knows your ev’ry care,
There’s not a cross so heavy
But that His grace can bear.
