1 Another happy hour has passed
In prayer and converse sweet;
Lord, keep us faithful, kind and true,
Till here again we meet,
Lord, watch between us day by day,
Do Thou our witness be;
In all we do and all we say
We would be true to Thee!

2 May gentle words and kindly thoughts
Go with us as we part,
And tender Christian sympathy
Fill ev’ry loving heart.
Lord, watch between us as we go,
And witness from above,
If aught shall break this holy bond,
This fellowship of love.

3 United under Thy dear name,
O Lord Thy Spirit give,
And may our first endeavor be
A Christian life to live.
And in this holy parting hour
Do Thou our witness be,
That naught shall ever rule our hearts
But heavenly charity.
