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. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Since we are called to part

Since we are called to part

Representative Text

1 Since we are call'd to part
From our beloved friend,
We take our leave as one in heart,
And him to God commend.

2 Go with thy servant, Lord,
His ev'ry step attend;
All needful help to him afford,
And bless him to the end.

3 Preserve him from all wrong,
Stand thou at his right hand;
To keep him from the sland'rous tongue,
And persecuting band.

4 May he proclaim aloud
The wonders of thy grace;
And do thou to the list'ning crowd
His faithful labours bless.

5 Shine on his works below,
With ever gracious beams;
Till thou in heaven his crown bestow
Adorn'd with brighter gems.

6 We for his journey pray,
Nor may our prayers cease,
That God would bless him in his way,
And bring him back in peace.

7 Farewll, dear pastor, go--
We part with thee in love;
And if we meet no more below,
O may we meet above.
