Across the deep dark waters
they come seeking to be free
Through deserts, over mountains
they long the light to see
Pilgrim was the name they had
those many years ago
we recount their brave endeavor
their stories well we know
Harassed within the borders
of their country left behind
they made the treacherous journey
a new life they dared to find
The human heart remains alert
to the hope that might be found
in a place where fear is vanquished
in a home on solid ground
So give thanks for what we’re given
acknowledge that we’re blessed
but remember God gives to us
so we might share with all the rest
