Friends Of Jesus, Him Believing

Representative Text

1 Friends of Jesus, Him believing,
Shall with God forever dwell;
Thus we sing, when deeply grieving,
We must bid dear friends farewell.

2 Though with hearts bowed down in sorrow
We must bid them here good-by,
On the resurrection-morrow
We shall meet them in the sky.

3 Though we here no more shall meet them
In the path that we have trod,
We with joy again shall greet them
In our blessed home with God.

4 Sing with joy, though hearts be grieving,
When we bid them here farewell:
Friends of Jesus, Him believing,
Shall with God forever dwell.
