Representative Text

1 Saviour, keep us till we meet again,
Let Thy blessing with us still remain;
Hold us ever by Thy mighty hand;
Guide our footsteps to the Better Land.

Refrain:
Till we meet again, till we meet again;
Saviour, keep us till we meet again;
Till we meet again, till we meet again;
Grace and peace be with us all. Amen.

2 Many dangers will around us throng,
Faith, triumphant, sings her victor song;
Taking Jesus as our Guard and Guide,
Joy and safety at His wounded side. [Refrain]

3 Only parting for a little while,
Let us linger in the Master’s smile;
Singing, praying, thro’ life’s sun and rain,
Saviour, keep us till we meet again. [Refrain]
