1 Now our hymns are ended, all our songs are sung,
Willing praise we’ve rendered, every heart and tongue.

Grant us all Thy blessing, as Thy house we leave,
And Thy benediction may we all receive;
Be with us and guide us, send Thy light before,
Closely walk beside us till we meet once more.

2 Everywhere surrounded by Thy loving care,
May our faith be founded on Thy precepts fair. [Refrain]

3 Thro’ earth’s joys and sadness, thro’ the day and night,
Fill us with Thy gladness, lead us with Thy light. [Refrain]
