1 Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing,
Fill our hearts with joy and peace!
Let us each, Thy Love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming grace:
O refresh us,
Traveling through this wilderness.
2 Thanks we give, and adoration
For Thy gospel's joyful sound.
May the fruits of Thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound.
May Thy presence
With us evermore be found.
3 So, whene'er the signal's given
Us from earth to call away,
Born on angels' wings to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey,
May we ready,
Rise and reign in endless day.
