“Pilgrim Progress”

But now they DESIRE A BETTER COUNTRY, that is, AN HEAVENLY: wherefore GOD IS NOT ASHAMED TO BE CALLED THEIR GOD: for HE HATH PREPARED FOR THEM A CITY. - Hebrews 11:16

Poor pilgrim take Christ with thee 
"In Him dwelleth all the fullness of Godhead bodily"
Divest yourself of earthly frugal dress 
Put on His white raiment with heavenly trace

Pour contempt on all your harboured shame 
With thy mouth confess His saving name 
"God hath not given us the spirit of fear"
Lo He's with thee, His glory is thy rear

"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good"
Your Bible is thy heavenly appointed food 
"Study to show thyself approved unto God"
Then unfurl your colours to the sunken world

"Let no man despise thy youth"
Words be true aimed from quiver of truth 
"Let us not be weary in well doing"
Help the helpless, abject and undeserving

"Come ye yourselves apart, and rest awhile"
Pray for strength against Satan's whims and wile 
Feast on rich viands of grace, find thy bead 
"My flesh is meat indeed, my blood drink indeed"

Soldier of the cross play not the worldling's part 
Permit no divers lusts encumber your heart 
"Preach the word ; be instant in season, out of season"
Always please your commander for love's reason

"Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might"
When afflictions fever and joys take their flight
Whip a song from your heart, it is good to hum
"A little while, and He that shall come will come"

"When the keepers of the house shall tremble"
And poor lisping lips shape but a mumble 
Though eyes bleary be , this memory won't flee 
A crown of righteousness laid up for thee in glory
