God be with you till we meet again;
loving counsels guide, uphold you,
with a shepherd’s care enfold you:
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again;
unseen wings protecting hide you,
daily manna still provide you:
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again
when life’s perils thick confound you
put unfailing arms around you,
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again.
keep love’s banner floating o’er you,
smite death’s threat’ning wave before you
God be with you till we meet again.
