We'll Never Say Goodbye Lyrics
With friends on earth we meet in gladness,
While swift the moments fly,
Yet ever comes the tho't of sadness,
That we must say, "Goodbye."
We'll never say goodbye in Heav'n,
We'll never say goodbye,
For in that land of joy and song,
We'll never say goodbye.
How joyful is the hope that lingers,
When loved ones cross death's sea,
That we, when all earth's toils are ended,
With Thee shall ever be.
No parting words shall e'er be spoken,
In yonder home so fair,
But songs of joy, and peace, and gladness,
We'll sing forever there.
