Lyrics

VERSE 1
I have left the land of pleasure, heading for the land of treasure
Looking only at the pearl that I have found
I have left that life behind me; there is nothing to remind me
There is nothing that would make me turn around

CHORUS
I’m content to be a stranger in this land of sin and danger
I’m content to seek to follow His command
I’m content to run with patience and ignore the world’s temptations
I’m content to be a pilgrim in this land

VERSE 2
Jesus left us to prepare it; build the mansion we’ll inherit
And He left us here to spread the Gospel seed
In that land of many mansions, may they add a few expansions
For the harvest of the souls who hear and heed

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 3
Bills and taxes and inflation, war and strife in every nation
And temptations that our fathers never knew
Though His mercy makes me strong here, surely I do not belong here
I remember I am only passing through

REPEAT CHORUS 2X
