Representative Text

1 Brother, thou art gone,
Far, far on high;
God has called thee home,
No more to die.

Farewell, farewell,
On earth we meet no more;
Farewell, farewell,
We meet on Canaan’s shore.

2 Brother, thou art gone,
Where all are blest;
God has bid thee come
Home to thy rest. [Refrain]

3 Brother, thou art gone,
We feel thy loss;
Humbly we would bow
Low at the cross. [Refrain]

4 Brother, thou art gone,
Though we may weep,
God in perfect peace
Thy soul will keep. [Refrain]
