Farewell my dear brethren the time is at hand




Farewell, My Dear Brethren, The Time is At Hand
When we must be parted from this social band;
Our several engagements now call us away;
Separation is needful, and we must obey.


Farewell, my dear brethren, farewell for awhile.
We'll soon meet again if kind Providence smile,
But when we are parted and scattered abroad.
We'll pray for each other and trust in the Lord.


Farewell, younger brethren, just listed for war,
Sore trials await you, but Jesus is near;
Although you must travel this dark wilderness,
Your Captain's before you, he'll lead you to rest.


Farewell, my dear brethren, farewell all around;
Perhaps we'll not meet till the last trump shall sound;
To meet you in glory I give you my hand,
The Saviour to praise in a pure social band.

Farewell, My Dear Brethren, The Time is At Hand
When we must be parted from this social band;
Our several engagements now call us away;
Our parting is needful and we must obey.


Farewell, my dear brethren, farewell for awhile
We’ll soon meet again, if kind providence smile:
But when we are parted, and scattered abroad,
We’ll pray for each other, and wrestle with God.


Farewell, faithful Christians, farewell all around,
Perhaps we’ll not meet till the last trump shall sound;
To meet you in heaven, I give you my hand,
Our Saviour to praise in the heavenly land.
