AT PARTING FAREWELL




O Happy day, when saints shall meet,
To part no more! the thought is sweet!
No more to feel the rending smart,
Oft felt below when Christians part.


O happy place! I still must say,
Where all but love is done away;
All cause of parting there is past,
Their social feast will ever last.


Such union here is sought in vain,
As there in every heart shall reign;
There separation can't compel
The saint to bid the sad farewell


On earth, when friends, together meet,
And find the passing movements sweet,
Time's rapid moments soon compel
With grief to say, Dear friends, farewell.


The shepherd feels the smarting shock,
Of parting from his weeping flock;
His feelings for them, none can tell,
When forced to sayŚmy friends, farewell.


The happy season soon will come,
When saints shall meet in heaven, their home;
Eternally with Christ to dwell,
Nor ever hear the sound Farewell.


---Alternative verses---


On earth, when friends together meet,
And find the passing moments sweet;
Times rapid motions soon compel,
With grief to sayŚdear friends, farewell.
