I see Christian pilgrim
Soul redeemed from sin
Called out of darkness
A new life to begin

Were you ever in the valley
Where the way is dark and dim
Did you ever drink the cup
Of lonliness with him?

Did you ever have them laugh at you
And say it was a fake
The stand that you so boldly
For the Lord did take

Did they ever mock at you
And laugh in ways quit grim
Did you ever drink the cup
Of lonliness with him?

--- Instrumental ---

Did you ever try to preach
Then hold fast and pray
And even when you did it
There did not seem a way

And you lost all courage
Then lost all your vim
Did you ever drink the cup
Of lonliness with him?

Aw, my friend 'tis bitter sweet
While here on earthly sod
To follow in the footsteps
That our dear Savior trod

To suffer with the Savior
And when the way is dark and dim
To drink of the bitter the cup
Of loneliness with Him
