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.

A Dying Saint's Farewell

Dear friends, farewell, I go to dwell

Published in 8 hymnals

Full Text

1 Dear friends farewell, I go to dwell
With Jesus Christ, on high;
There for to sing praise to my King
To all eternity.

2 While I've been here you have been dear,
I've always found you kind;
But now through grace, I quit this place,
And leave you all behind.

3 Weep not for me, for here you see
My trials have been great;
But now ('tis true) I bid adieu,
And change my mournful state.

4 'Twill not be long before the throng
Will all together be;
And you that know the Lord, below,
Shall then your Savior see.

5 There we shall join in songs divine,
God's holy name shall praise;
And view Christ's smiles, forget the toils
Of these few evil days.

6 There we shall stand at his right hand,
And in his presence dwell;
And him adore, forevermore,
So brethren, now farewell.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
