The text of this pilgrimage hymn to the Mother of God is that of Father William Levkulic and cantor Jerry Jumba, who also published an English translation, Sing with joy and pray together (Come to Uniontown).

The title is rendered in English as "Uniontown Pilgrims", and the song refers specifically to the annual pilgrimage to the Basilian monastery of Mount Saint Macrina (Uniontown, PA) in honor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, which is held over Labor Day weekend and has taken place annually since 1934.

This hymn was reviewed as part of the Hymnal Project of the Metropolitan Cantor Institute. See the discussion page.


The text was published in a small booklet of pilgrimage hymns from the Sisters of Saint Basil in 1974.

Text and music were published in the Marian Hymnal (1984) on page 8.
