Representative Text

1 Here we meet and part in Jesus,
But our spirits never part;
Love, undying love so precious,
Holds you sacred in our heart.

God be with you, O my brethren,
Till our work on earth is o’er;
Soon in sacred bliss we’ll gather,
Where the ransomed part no more.

2 Grace hath robed your souls in beauty,
Molded you in love divine;
May your lives reflect her virtue
To the glorious end of time. [Refrain]

3 As we meet in sweet devotion,
Blest in song and owned in prayer,
Comes the thought, in deep emotion,
“Who will meet me over there?” [Refrain]

4 O our God, in sov’reign mercy
Guide us o’er life’s tossing sea;
At Thy throne we’ll meet to praise Thee,
Endless as eternity. [Refrain]
