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.
