My friends, I bid you all farewell,
Farewell, my friends, farewell,
And if I never see you more,
While we on earth remain,
O may we meet on Canaan’s shore,
And never part again.

My friends, if you no more I see,
Farewell, remember me,
There we shall join to sing God’s praise,
And all his wonders tell,
And triumph in his holy ways,
So brethren fare you well.
