Full Text

1 As we sing our parting song,
And its holy notes prolong,
Let our hearts fly unto him,
Who has cleansed our souls from sin.

Jesus, Savior,
Bless us as we part,
Fill our souls with love for thee,
Give us grace for days to be;
Keep, oh, keep us pure in heart,
Keep, oh, keep us pure in heart.

2 Savior, may our love o’erflow,
Unto sinners help us go;
May our words and kindly deeds
Prove our thought for others’ needs. [Refrain]

3 If the tempest comes our way,
We will look to God, our stay;
He will grant us needed pow’r
To resist in ev’ry hour. [Refrain]
