Brethren I bid you all farewell

Published in 28 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Brethren, I bid you all farewell,
And from my very heart,
Affectionately I do tell,
That you and I must part.

2 And if I see you not again,
I trust that I can say,
My labor shall not be in vain,
That I have spent this day.

3 I trust I can to record call,
All you that hear me now,
I have declared God's counsels all,
As he did me endow.

4 I now depart, I leave you here,
I leave you with the Lord,
And may we all henceforth appear
To be of one accord.

5 And if we never meet again,
While we on earth remain,
O may we meet on Canaan's shore,
And never part again.

6 There we shall join to sing God's praise,
And all his wonders tell,
And triumph in his holy ways,
So brethren fare you well.
