This was a song sung at the graduation at West Point each year in the 1800's. Would like to find the lyrics, melody, and chords to play on acoustic guitar.

partial lyrics - qouted from a site about the Civil War -

When shall we meet again?
Meet ne'er to sever?
When will Peace wreath her chain
Round us forever?
Our hearts will ne'er repose
Safe from each blast that blows
In this dark vale of woes,-
Never-no, never.

From The Modern Scottish Minstrel, Vol. 4 edited by Charles Rogers (Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, 1857), page 81:


WHEN SHALL WE MEET AGAIN?

When shall we meet again,
Meet ne'er to sever?
When shall Peace wreath her chain
Round us for ever?
When shall our hearts repose,
Safe from each breath that blows,
In this dark world of woes?
Never! oh, never!

Fate's unrelenting hand
Long may divide us,
Yet in one holy land
One God shall guide us.
Then, on that happy shore,
Care ne'er shall reach us more,
Earth's vain delusions o'er,
Angels beside us.

There, where no storms can chill,
False friends deceive us,
Where, with protracted thrill,
Hope cannot grieve us;
There with the pure in heart,
Far from fate's venom'd dart,
There shall we meet to part
Never! oh, never!

From Union Hymns edited by Lowell Mason (Boston: Perkins, Marvin & Co., 1834), pate 254:


1. When shall we meet again,
Meet ne'er to sever?
When will peace wreath her chain
Round us forever?—
Our hearts will ne'er repose,
Safe from each blast that blows
In this dark vale of woes—
Never—no, never!

2. When shall love freely flow,
Pure as life's river?
When shall sweet friendship glow,
Changeless forever?—
Where joys celestial thrill,
Where bliss each heart shall fill,
And fears of parting chill—
Never—no, never!

3. Up to that world of light
Take us, dear Saviour!
May we all there unite,
Happy forever!
Where kindred spirits dwell,
There may our music swell,
And time our joys dispel—
Never—no, never.

4. Soon shall we meet again,
Meet ne'er to sever;
Soon will peace wreath her chain,
Round us forever:
Our hearts will then repose,
Secure from worldly woes:
Our songs of praise shall close—
Never—no, never!
