THE CHRISTIAN FAREWELL




Thy presence, everlasting God!
Wide oer all nature spreads abroad:
Thy watchful eyes, which cannot sleep,
In every place thy children keep.


While near each other we remain,
Thou dost our lives and souls sustain;
When separate, happy if we share
Thy smiles, thy counsels, and thy care.


To thee we all our ways commit,
And seek our comforts near thy feet;
Still on our souls vouchsafe to shine,
And guard and guide us still as thine.


Give us, in thy beloved house,
Again to pay our grateful vows;
Or, if that joy no more be known,
Give us to meet around thy throne.
