Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
And now, my friends, both old and young,
I hope in Christ you will go on;
And if on earth we meet no more,
Oh, may we meet on Canaanís shore.
I hope youíll all remember me,
If you on earth no more I see.
An intírest in your prayers I crave,
That we may meet beyond the grave.

My dearest friends in bonds of love,, Stanza 5
