588. Lord, Dismiss Us with Thy Blessing

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, O refresh us,
Trav'ling 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, may Thy presence
With us evermore be found.

3 So that when Thy love shall call us,
Savior, from the world away,
Fear of death shall not appall us,
Glad Thy summons to obey.
May we ever, may we ever
Reign with Thee in endless day.
