God Be with You Till We Meet Again

When I was 16 years old my Grandmother passed away. She had requested that all her grandchildren sing this song, God Be with You Till We Meet Again, at her funeral. It was a hard song to sing then and every time since that I've sung it I can still feel that feeling of sadness and loss. I've been wanting to write an arrangement of this song for her for a long time.
It was a hard arrangement to write at first because it made me think of her, and the other loved ones I've lost since then. But the more I played it the more peace it brought me. I thought of my Grandmother singing it to me, praying that God will be with me until I see her again, knowing that I will need His presence in my life to get to where she is and to be with her again.
I'm so grateful for the knowledge I have that we will be together as families forever. Although the temporary separation is so hard when a loved one leaves this life, it is only temporary and we will see them again.

  1. When I printed this song out the notes were made to look like O's and E's. On the page it looked just like the music until I printed it. Did I click on something wrong, or is this how it is supposed to look?

    1. It shouldn't look like that and I'm not sure why it did that. I'm sorry for the confusion! I'd be happy to email you a copy of the song and maybe that would fix it. Let me know if you'd like me to do that!
