Though Tis Hard To Part From A Friend Th


Though ’tis hard to part from a friend that’s dear,
And it costs a sigh and a falling tear;
Yet our hearts are thrilled with a thought of cheer,
We can meet by the way of the Throne.

Refrain:
When our pathways part and we walk alone,
We can kneel in pray’r at the Father’s Throne;
‘Tis the only place where our hearts can meet,
In a fellowship ever sweet.

By the distance veiled from our longing eyes,
Are the face and form that we deeply prize;
Yet this comfort comes like a glad surprise,
We can meet by the way of the Throne. [Refrain]

Though at times we whisper a sad farewell,
And we know a grief which we cannot tell,
There’s a sweet assurance that all is well,
We can meet by the way of the Throne. [Refrain]

Though we sometimes part from the one we love,
There’s a tender joy we can always prove;
We can pray for him as we look above,
We can meet by the way of the Throne. [Refrain]
