God be with you till we meet again;
by good counsels guide, uphold you,
with a shepherd's care enfold you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Refrain
Till we meet, (till we meet,)
till we meet, (till we meet again,)
till we meet at Jesus' feet; (till we meet,)
till we meet, (till we meet,)
till we meet, (till we meet again.)
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again;
holy wings securely hide you,
daily manna still provide you;
God be with you till we meet again. (Refrain)

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


Jesus leaves the disciples with a commission to go into the world, but promises to be with them through the end of the age. The letter to the church in Corinthians ends with instructions about conduct and behavior that will help that community follow Jesus in the absence of Paul's presence with them. The life of the Christian is full of endings and goodbyes. Yet the message of the Resurrection is that every ending, every goodbye, really ends with "till we meet ... till we meet at Jesus' feet." The promise of that meeting sustains and strengthens us through the variety of changes and farewells that occur in our lives.

Dear Jesus, thank you that we will meet again. Use us to spread the light of the Resurrection in our world. Amen.
