Farewell, my dear brethren, farewell for a while,
We'll soon meet again, if kind Providence smile,
But while we are parted, and scatter'd abroad,
We'll pray for each other, and trust in the Lord.
The world and the devil, and sin, all unite,
And hold persecution, your souls to affright;
But Jesus, your leader, is stronger than they -
Let this animate you to march on your way.
Farewell, my dear brethren, farewell all around,
Perhaps we'll not meet till the last trumpet's sound;
To meet you in glory I give you my hand,
Our Saviour to praise in a pure social band.
