1 Dear Friends farewel, I go to dwell
With Jesus Christ, on High;
There for to sing Praise to my King
To all Eternity.
2 While I've been here you have been dear,
I've always found you kind;
But now thro' Grace, I quit this Place,
And leave you all behind.
3 Weep not for me, for here you see
My Trials have been great;
But now ('tis true) I bid adieu,
And change my mournful State.
4 'Twill not be long before the Throng
Will all together be;
And you that know the Lord, below,
Shall then your Saviour see.
5 There we shall join in songs Divine,
God's holy Name shall Praise;
And view Christ's Smiles, forget the Toils
Of these few evil Days.
6 There we shall stand at his right Hand,
And in his Presence dwell;
And him adore, forevermore,
So Brethren, now farewel.
