Go Walk with God

Full Text

Go walk with God in all you do,
And may God’s love bring joy to you.
May gifts of peace fill all your days,
And may God’s truth guide you always.

O may the grace of Christ our Lord,
The wondrous love that comes from God,
The Spirit’s fellowship now be
God’s gifts to you eternally.

We thank you, Lord, for life we share
In learning, serving, praise and prayer.
And when we say good-bye to friends,
We thank you, Lord: Love never ends.
