109. Mizpah

1 Let us ask the precious Saviour
To go with us while we part,
For His presence in life’s journey
Peace and comfort will impart.

Long our hallowed pray’r will linger,
Mingling with sweet melody;
Be our wish at parting, “Mizpah,”
May the Lord keep watch over you and me.

2 Know we not what changes wait us,
But we know our mighty Guide,
Safe are we in His dear keeping,
Happy, when He walks beside. [Refrain]

3 In His tender hands entrusting
Ev’ry link in love’s bright chain;
‘Tis a blessed hope that whispers,
Surely we shall meet again. [Refrain]

4 Meet again, no more to sever,
In the “beautiful beyond,”
Where the love of our Redeemer
Is the strongest, sweetest bond. [Refrain]
