1 A pilgrim was I, and a-wand'ring,
  In the cold night of sin I did roam,
  When Jesus the kind Shepherd found me,
  And now I am on my way home.

Chorus:
  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
  All the days, all the days of my life;
  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
  All the days, all the days of my life.

2 He restoreth my soul when I'm weary,
  He giveth me strength day by day;
  He leads me beside the still waters,
  He guards me each step of the way. (Chorus)

3 When I walk thro' the dark lonesome valley,
  My Savior will walk with me there;
  And safely His great hand will lead me
  To the mansions He's gone to prepare. (Chorus)

Coda:
  And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever,
  And I shall feast at the table spread for me;
  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
  all the days, all the days of my life,
  All the days, all the days of my life.

Tune: SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY P. 1 - P. 2 - P. 3
