50a. 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.
Oh, refresh us, Oh, 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;
Ever faithful, Ever faithful
To the Truth may we be found!

3 So whene'er the signal's given
Us from earth to all away,
Borne on angels' wings to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey,
May we ever, May we ever
Reign with Christ in endless day!
