Description: Tune composed by Amos Pilsbury in 1799, as Kingston. Arranged by Ingalls in 1805 for three voices. A folk hymn (Jackson 1953b, no. 346). See David Music (1995) for a discussion of the history of this tune. Words by an anonymous author, first published 1793, sometimes attributed to George Askins (died 1816), unlikely since he emigated to the United States in 1801 (Richard Hulan, in Steel and Hulan 2010). Most often (as in Ingalls 1805) it appears with three stanzas.

1. Jesus, grant us all a blessing,
Send it down, Lord, from above;
May we all go home a–praising,
And rejoicing in thy love.
Farewell, brethren, farewell, sisters,
Till we all shall meet again.

 

2. Jesus, pardon all our follies,
Since together we have been ;
Make us humble, make us holy,
Cleanse us all from every sin.
Farewell, brethren, farewell, sisters,
Till we all shall meet again.

 

3. May thy blessing, Lord, go with us
To each ones respective home;
And the presence of our Jesus,
Rest upon us every one.
Farewell, brethren, farewell, sisters,
Till we all shall meet again.
