Fanny Crosby is as good in French as she is in English!  I found this  piece  in its original English at http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/m/e/meetmeth.htm.   Sarah sang this song (the French version) at her Tante Doris’s funeral years ago.  (Tante Doris spoke no English.)

I’m telling you–Fanny Crosby and I are kindred spirits!   How about this line from “Meet Me There”:

” Where our faith is lost in sight, meet me there” 

Ah, ouai, chere, rejoindres moi la!
