1 God be in the farewell chorus
Of the parting Sabbath Day;
In the world again before us,
May we keep the narrow way.
Tho’ the hand of time divide us
More than mind of man can tell,
Let us pray that He may guide us
To the end, our last farewell.
Jesus bless Thy children’s meeting,
Farewell though none can tell
The hour when we meet again,
WE pray that all the missing faces
May shine like stars in heav’nly places.
2 Parting savors oft of sadness,
Plaintive drops the last amen,
But the Lord’s may part in gladness,
Knowing they shall meet again.
They the salt of earth and leaven
Of a world too prone to sin,
Toil apart for promised heaven
Sure at last to enter in. [Refrain]
