Slide set: Pilgrims of the night (song: Bamforth & Co., 7 slides, 1897)

Descriptive data for this set (listed below slide images)
Slide 1
Hark! hark, my soul! angelic songs are swelling / O'er earth's green fields, and ocean's wave-beat shore
Slide 2
Darker than life's shadows close around us / And like benighted men we miss our mark
Slide 3
Onward we go, for still we hear them singing, / 'Come, weary souls, for Jesus bids you come'
Slide 4
Far, far away, like bells at evening pealing, / The voice of Jesus sounds o'er land and sea
Slide 5
Rest comes at length, though life be long and dreary / The day must dawn and darksome night be past
Slide 6
Cheer up, my soul! faith's moonbeams softly glisten / Upon the breast of life's most troubled sea
Slide 7
Angels! sing on, your faithful watches keeping, / Sing us sweet fragments of the songs above
