PARTING HYMN




How sweet the interview with friends,
Whose hopes and aims are one;
All earthly pleasures it transcends,
And swift the moments run.


Of sympathy and love possessed,
Our sorrows we impart;
And when with pure enjoyments blessed,
They go from heart to heart.


Pursuing still our way to bliss,
A weak and feeble band,
We trust in Christ our righteousness,
Who will out strength command.


Though for a season we must part,
As urgent duties call,
Still we remain but one in heart,
And Jesus is our all.


Oh may his glorious cause increase,
And we his wonders tell;
Now bid us, Lord, depart in peace,
And now, dear friends, farewell.
