Pilgrims of the earth who roam,
In midnight darkness through life's devious way,
And from the path that leadeth to your home,
In helpless ignorance and error stray;
Look o'er the hills afar!
Can ye discern no softly-gleaming light?
All hail the rising of yon radiant star,
Which shall dispel the deepest shades of night!
