Farewell, lovely Christian, the time is at hand,
When Ave must be parted from this social band;
Our several engagements do call us away,
Separation is needful, and we must obey.
Farewell, my dear brethren, farewell for a while,
We'll soon meet again, if kind Providence smile;
But when we are parted and scattered abroad,
We '11 pray for each other while musing with God.
Farewell, faithful soldiers, you '11 soon be discharged,
The war's almost over, the crown is enlarged.
With singing and shouting, though Jordan may roar,
You '11 enter fair Canaan and rest on the shore.
Farewell, ye young converts, enlisted for war;
Sore trials await you, but Jesus is near;
Although you must travel this dark wilderness,
Your captain will lead you to his promised rest.
