3 We part in body, not in mind;
Our minds continue one;
We hand in hand go on.
No power can make us twain; And mountains rise, and oceans roll,
To sever us, in vain.
And intimately nigh,
We each to other fly.
In heavenly places sit;
The moon beneath our feet.
Our Life shall soon appear,
In all His members here.
In a mean house of clay;
And keep it to that day.
And He shall keep them still;,
With Him on Sion's hill!
Our face like His shall shine:
When saints and angels join! 11 O what a joyful meeting there !
In robes of white arrayed,
Aud crowns upon our head. 12 Then let us lawfully contend,
And fight our passage through ;
And keep the prize in view.
13 Then let us hasten to the Day,
When all shall be brought home;
O Jesus, quickly come! 952 (411)
C. WESLEY. L Te followers her the Lamb,
IFT up your hearts to things above, And join with us to praise His love,
And glorify His name: 2 To Jesu's Name give thanks and sing,
Whose mercies never end; Rejoice! rejoice! the Lord is King;
The King is now our Friend! 3 We, for His sake, count all things loss;
On earthly good look down; And joyfully sustain the cross,
Till we receive the crown. 4 O let us stir each other up,
Our faith by works to' approve,
And the sweet task of love!

Whoe'er to Jesus bow;
Which God, in Christ, imparts; We pray the Spirit of our Head
Into your faithful hearts. 8 Mercy and peace your portion be,
To carnal minds unknown, The hidden manna, and the tree
Of life, and the white stone. 9 Let all who for the Promise wait, The Holy Ghost receive;
And, raised to our unsinning state,
With God in Eden live!
And wait His heaven to share:
Go on :-we'll meet you there.
