One more hymn we'll sing at parting

Representative Text

1 One more hymn we'll sing at parting,
One more strain of grateful praise;
While our purest tho'ts and feelings
Mingle with the notes we raise;
Children, teachers, loving pastor,
All together join the lay;
Swell the chorus till the echo
Sounds along the heavenly way.

Chorus:
One more hymn we'll sing at parting,
One more hymn of grateful praise;
While our purest tho'ts and feelings
Mingle with the notes we raise.

2 Be the measure sweetly tender;
Sing of mercy pure and free;
Sing of Jesus, precious Saviour--
Him who died for you and me;
Sing how great his loving kindness,
To his children day by day,
How with gentle hand He leads them
All along the shining way. [Chorus]

3 Let us look by faith to Jesus,
Lowly bending at his feet;
Humbly ask his love to guide us,
When we leave this dear retreat;
Father, grant us now thy blessing;
Saviour, make us ever thine;
Holy Spirit, be our comfort;
Fill our hearts with love divine. [Chorus]
