Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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.
