We Shall Never Say Goodbye

Full Text

1 Farewell, brother, we shall never,
In our home beyond the sky,
Speak the painful word at parting,
We shall never say goodbye.

No farewell word shall e’er be heard,
Beyond the vaulted sky;
In heaven blest the soul shall rest,
No more to say goodbye.

2 Farewell, brother, we shall anchor
In that morning by and by,
With our stormy voyage over,
We shall never say goodbye. [Refrain]

3 When our trials here are ended,
And we reach our home on high,
Where the blest shall part, no, never,
We shall hear no sad goodbye. [Refrain]

4 Oh, how sweet the thought at parting,
We’ve a mansion in the sky,
Where the happy sainted millions
Never speak the word “goodbye”! [Refrain]
