Representative Text

1 Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing now,
As we humbly in Thy presence bow;
Guide and guard us ev’ry step we take,
And bless us for Thy dear name’s sake.

Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing;
Fill our hearts with joy, and love, and peace;
May Thy presence sweetly cheer us
Till our conflicts all shall cease.

2 May we follow closely ev’ry day
In Thy footsteps thro’ the thorny way,
Look above the clouds and darkness drear,
And Thou wilt cast away each fear. [Refrain]

3 When at last our work on earth is done,
And our toilsome, weary race is run,
Lead us safely to our home above,
And keep us ever in Thy love. [Refrain]
