Tune: PARTING (Ashmead)
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 A song, a song of gladness!--
For, though we here may part,
Breathe not a note of sadness;
We still are join'd in heart:
And long will we remember
This happy Sabbath day.

2 Around thy throne of glory,
Blest Jesus, angels sing,
Telling in all the story
Of Christ, the Saviour-King;
'Tis this that tunes our voices
This happy Sabbath-day.

3 Send us a parting blessing,
O Father, from above;
May we, thy grace possessing,
He saved, to sing thy love,
And spend in heaven, forever,
A long and happy day!
