11317. Now In Parting, Father, Bless Us

1 Now, in parting, Father, bless us;
Saviour, still Thy peace bestow;
Gracious Comforter, be with us,
As we from Thy table go!
Bless us, bless us,
Father, Son, and Spirit, now!

2 Bless us here, while still as strangers,
Onward to our home we move;
Bless us with eternal blessings,
In our Father’s house above.
Ever, ever
Dwelling in the light of love.
