Lyrics: Thomas Cleland, 1807

Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand
When we must be parted from this social band;
Our several engagements now call us away,
Our parting is needful, and we must obey.
Farewell, my dear brethren, farewell for awhile.
We’ll soon meet again if kind Providence smile;
But while we are parted and scatter’d abroad
We’ll pray for each other and trust in the Lord.
