We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

A Parting Hymn

Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing, Send it to us from above

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Lord dismiss us with thy blessing,
Send it to us from above;
May we go home a praising,
And rejoicing in thy love;
Farewell brethren, farewell sisters,
'Till we all shall meet above.

2 Pardon Lord now all our follies,
While together we have been;
Make us humble make us holy,
Cleanse us all from ev'ry sin,
Farewell brethren, farewell sisters,
'Till we all shall meet again.

3 May thy presence, Lord go with us,
To each one's respective home;
And the presence of our Jesus,
Rest upon us ev'ry one;
Farewell brethren farewell sisters
'Till we all shall meet at home.
