Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Friend's Parting Hymn

Representative Text

1 Our souls by love together knit,
Cemented mixed in one,
One hope, one heart, one mind, one voice,
'Tis heaven on earth begun;
Our hearts have burned while Jesus spoke,
And glowed with sacred fire
He stopped and talked and fed, and blessed,
And filled th' enlarged desire.

Refrain:
A Savior let creation sing,
A Savior let all Heaven ring
He's God with us we feel him ours,
His fullness in our soul he pours:
'Tis almost done, 'tis almost o'er
We're joining them who're gone before,
We then shall meet to part no more,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen, Amen.

2 We're soldiers fighting for our God,
Let trembling cowards fly;
We'll stand unshaken firm and fixed
With Christ to live and die:
Let devils rage and hell assail,
We'll cut our passage through;
Let foes unite and friends desert,
We'll seize the crown our due. [Refrain]

3 The little cloud increases still,
The heavens are big with rain;
We haste to catch the teeming shower,
And all its moisture drain:
A rill, a stream, a torrent flows,
But pour the mighty flood;
O sweep the nations, shake the earth,
Till all proclaim thee God. [Refrain]

4 And when thou makest thy jewels up
And sets thy starry crown,
When all thy sparkling gems shall shine,
Proclaimed by thee thine own;
May we, we little band of love
Be sinners saved by grace,
From glory into glory changed,
Behold thee face to face. [Refrain]

Tune

WASHINGTON


CORONATION (Holden)

Like MILES LANE (470), CORONATION was written for this text. Oliver Holden (b. Shirley, MA, 1765; d. Charlestown, MA, 1844) composed the tune in four parts with a duet in the third phrase. The tune, whose title comes from the theme of Perronet's text, was published in Holden's Union Harmony (1793).…
