Ance mair we a’ maun pairt again, and mair maun say guidbye
But we are a’ in Jesus ane, join’d wi’ a tender tie

Guidbye until we meet again, may God be wi’ us a’
Until we meet ayont the sky, when time has fled awa’

Wi’ gratefu’ herts we turn to Him, the Source o’ ev’ry joy
Nought frae Him shall us separate, no pow’r oor peace destroy

Nae mair frae tainted streams we’ll drink, or lang for bygane days
For noo oor pleasures are complete, oor herts are fu’ o praise

In Jesus’ precious Name we met, in Jesus’ Name we’ll pairt
And tak’ His presence where we gan, whate’er may be oor airt
