267 PARTING FRIENDS (First) - as written

Denson Revision
to the alternate 1991 Revision version of this tune
to the alternate Cooper book version of this tune


Farewell, my friends, I'm bound for Canaan,
I'm trav'ling through the wilderness;
Your company has been delightful,
You, who doth leave my mind distressed.
I go away, behind to leave you;
Perhaps never to meet again,
But if we never have the pleasure,
I hope we'll meet on Canaan's land.
