1 Lord, dismiss us with your blessing;
Fill our hearts with joy and peace;
Let us each, your love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming grace:
O refresh us, O refresh us,
Trav'ling through this wilderness.
2 Thanks we give and adoration
For your gospel's joyful sound:
May the fruits of your salvation
In our hearts and lives abound:
Ever faithful, ever faithful,
To the truth may we be found.
3 So that when your love shall call us,
Saviour, from the world away,
Let no fear of death appall us,
Glad thy summons to obey:
May we ever, may we ever,
Reign with you in endless day.
