Fare-well! Fare-well! Farewell, dear friends,

I must be gone,

I have no home or stay with you;

I'll take my staff and trav-el on

Till I a bet-ter world do view.

I'll march to Canaan's land,

I'll land on Canaan's shore.

Where pleasures never end,

Where troubles come no more.

Fare-well! Fare-well! Fare-well, my loving friends, Farewell.

Farewell, my friends, time rolls along,

Nor waits for mortals' care or bliss;

I leave you here, and travel on

Till I arrive where Jesus is.

I'll march, &c.

Farewell, old soldiers of the cross,

You've struggled long and hard for heaven;

You've counted all things here but dross,

Fight on, the crown will soon be given.

I'll march, &c.

Fight on, &c.
