Dark And Thorny Is The Desert
Recorded by Ralph Stanley
Written by Dudley Dale Connell and Don Rigsby

Dark and thorny is the desert
Through which pilgrims make their way

Yet beyond this vale of sorrow
D7 G
Lie the fields of endless day

Oh young soldiers are you weary
Of the roughness of the way

Does your strength begin to fail you
D7 G
And your vigor to decay

Jesus Jesus will go with you
He will lead you to His throne

He whose thunder shapes creation
D7 G
He who bids the planets roll

Around Him are ten thousand angels
Ready to obey His command

They’ll all be there to hover round you
D7 G
Till you’ve reached the heavenly land

There on flowery hills of pleasure
Lie the fields of endless rest

Love and joy and peace forever
D7 G
Reign and triumph in your breast
