259. We'll Meet Again

1. The angels came with silent tread
And gathered round our darling's bed;
Unto their shining home above
They bore her in their arms of love.

Chorus:
We'll meet again, where comes no night,
We'll meet again, in realms of light;
We'll meet our loved among the blest;
Farewell, our darling, sweetly rest.

2. Thou, Father, doest all things well,
Altho' our hearts with sorrow swell;
There's comfort in thy grace alone,
Help us to say "Thy will be done."

3. Thy form may sleep beneath the sod,
Thy spirit dwells at home with God;
He bids us trust and weep no more,
For we shall see those gone before.

4. Farewell, we'll meet on yon bright shore,
Our sighs and tears shall then be o'er;
Farewell, again we sadly say,
Until there dawns eternal day.
