Description
God Be With You Til We Meet Again (hymn)
Text: Jeremiah E. Rankin, 1828-1904
Music: William G. Tomer, 1833-1896



For those who listen, here and Beyond....
And in memory of "droop"--Paul Lavon Davis (April 21, 1948 – April 22, 2008)


Just as with "Abide With Me," this was a spur-of-the-moment recording, far from perfect, that I wanted to share.

Lyrics
Text: Jeremiah E. Rankin, 1828-1904

God be with you till we meet again;
by his counsels guide, uphold you,
with his sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again.
Refrain:
Till we meet, till we meet,
till we meet at Jesus' feet;
till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again;
when life's perils thick confound you,
put his arms unfailing round you;
God be with you till we meet again.
(Refrain)

God be with you till we meet again;
keep love's banner floating o'er you,
smite death's threatening wave before you;
God be with you till we meet again.
(Refrain)

What is interesting is
hearing "I Go Crazy" and your singing together at the same time!
I know Paul gave you a great compliment on your harmony!
What a keep sake! Richard posted it in the chat that ya all participated in.

Thanks for this wonderful tune !

This has almost Marie Osmond feel to; it, I'll bet Paul would love this as a duet with you!. Who knows, he might be singing to it right now.

thank you, tiler
Thank you for the kind comments. Paul also left a lovely comment on "Abide With Me," which I posted in February, and which I had really appreciated at the time.
So posting this was partly a result of that, too.

Thanks again for your commments

A blessing
Such a wonderful and necessary gift this song is to me tonight. This helps me deal with the death of a friend I loved.

Beyond what is in my heart, this song is a true gift to the whole community. Thank you so much, Cat. I know Paul loves the fact that you wrote this and that we are deeply touched by it. Such love here...

Gorgeous
and stunningly appropriate. A beautiful spiritual that sums up the prayers many of us are saying today. Paul was a very spiritual person and there is no question that he would have loved this song.

Thank you so much, Cat.

Thank you. During work on Wednesday, all day, this hymn kept going through my mind. I knew I had to go home that evening and record it.
Your comments here are a nice confirmation, and I'm glad that I did.

Thank you
I just wanted to leave a quick 'thank you' to all those who have left comments or favs here.

When I posted this, I had no words to articulate what I was feeling, but I wanted to offer something to the community that expressed my support, and my condolences over the loss of Paul "droop."

Sometimes music best says what words cannot, and so I'm grateful that you've heard this song for what it was meant to be.
This community has been such a support to me in the past--in ways some of you will never know.

Thank you, and God bless.

Droop.
Below I have cut and pasted Droops Comments on my song Sunbeem
his last written words to my self. Thought you might like to read them here. Might give us all some comfort.
The Heading was One Take

Well that is really saying something and so is this beautiful composition.
You know my belief is that we have a chance to say a lot of things in our music with words or melodies. I always prefer to convey something
on the brighter side with a overall sense of goodness. You have the neat ability to always capture that feeling of happiness, hope, fun and in this case......Sunbeem!

Excellent
Unquote.

These words on your page with your wonderful song also seem the correct place to be. I am sure you agree.

Mystified are you and 'Angel; seriousely ? what a great comfort also to myself too .Words cannot express how you have moved me with your song. Simply Beautiful. And also captured my Sunbeem.

Peace Dee xx

Thoughts from the Bull...
I learned about this piece, as well as Paul's passing, from you tonight.

The news along with the song brought me to a teary sad place, and I will honor his passing in prayer tonight.

thank you for recognizing this person whom I never knew, but can now appreciate because of your kindness.

best wishes all. ~ Mark
