Hymn 219
1. Farewell, ye servants of the Lord,
To whom we oft have preached the word;
May you improve the wisdom given,
And lead ten thousand souls to heaven.

2. Farewell, ye saints of latter days,
With whom we've met in prayer and praise,
In whose kind hearts the truth has shone,
By which we're gathered all in one.

3. Farewell, kind friends, whose hearts are true,
We can no longer stay with you;
Arise, the voice of truth obey,
O come, and wash your sins away.

4. Farewell to all whose stubborn wills
Bind them in chains of darkness still;
Our voice no longer you shall hear
Till Jesus shall in clouds appear.

5. Then you shall see, and hear, and know,
What you rejected here below;
Though you may sink in endless pain,
Yet truth eternal will remain.
