Mizpah

"Therefore was the name of it called ...Mizpah for he said, 'The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.'" Genesis 31:48-49.

Go thou thy way and I go mine,
Apart, yet not afar,
Only a thin veil hangs between
The pathways where we are;
And "God keep watch
'tween me and thee,"
This is my prayer;
He looks thy way, He looketh mine,
And keeps us near.

I know not where thy road will lie,
Or which way mine will be;
If mine will lead through parching sands,
And thine beside the sea;
But God will watch 'tween me and thee,
So never fear,
He holds thy hand, He holdeth mine,
And keeps us near.

Should wealth and fame
perchance be thine,
And my lot lonely be,
Or you be sad and sorrowful
And glory be for me,
Yet God will watch 'tween me and thee
We are His care.
One arm 'round thee and one 'round me
Will keep us near.

I sigh ofttimes to see thy face,
But if this may not be,
I'll leave thee to the care of Him
Who cares for thee and me;
He keeps us both beneath His wings,
This comfort's dear;
One wing o'er thee, and one o'er me,
So we are near.

So while our paths are separate,
And thy way is not mine,
Yet coming to the Mercy Seat
My soul will meet with thine,
And "God keep watch
'tween me and thee,"
I'll whisper there;
He blesseth thee, He blesseth me,
And we are near.
