The Lord Keep Watch Between Us

Verse 1:
The Lord keep watch between us,
The ever present Friend;
No love like His so mighty,
To keep and to defend.

Refrain:
(Mizpah,) The Lord keep watch between us,
(Mizpah,) Keep watch in tend’rest love,
Until our praises mingle
Around the throne above.

Verse 2:
Though absent from each other,
We are not far from Him;
Let not our courage falter,
Let not our faith grow dim.

Verse 3:
Though time and space may sever
The Master’s servants here,
‘Tis only for a season,
The meeting-time draws near.

Verse 4:
The Lord Himself is watching
In tenderness and love;
Let praises meet and mingle
Around the throne above.

J.H. Johnston/James McGranahan
