Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing, Fill our hearts with joy and peace

Representative Text

1 Lord, dismiss us with your blessing;
fill our hearts with joy and peace.
Let us each, your love possessing,
triumph in redeeming grace.

for your gospel's joyful sound.

in our hearts and lives abound.
Ever faithful, ever faithful
to your truth may we be found.
