Farewell, Dearest Friends, from You I Must Go

Hymn 58 10 & 11s. 1. Farewell, dearest friends, from you I must go, To preach the true gospel, far away I must rove; I fear not the world, whate'er me betide, My God and my Savior will for me provide. 2. Altho' I confess that I am but a youth, That ne'er shall deter me from preaching the truth; My heart says I'm right - I'm a Latter-Day Saint, - My God and my Savior will ne'er let me faint. 3. He beckons! I start; to the East I will move, By a Savior conducted through heavenly love; What ills can befall me whilst I've such a guide, - A Savior and Sovereign for me crucified. 4. Your pray'rs, my dear friends, I expect whilst away - They'll help to support me by night and by day; So let not my absence cause any to mourn, My God will be with me - I'll safely return. 5. So fear not for me - I will preach to the world, Though I from the pulpit should oft times be hurled; Though devils incarnate against me combine, Yet still I'll be faithful - the promise is mine.
