LORD dismiss us with thy blessing,

Bid us all depart in peace;

Let us each thy love possessing,

Triumph in redeeming grace.

Fill each breast with consolation,

Up to thee our voices raise;

When we reach that blissful station,

Then we'll give thee nobler praise.

Thanks we give and adoration,

For the gospel's joyful sound;

May the fruits of thy salvation

In our hearts and lives abound.

Then whene'er the signal's given,

Us from earth to call away.

Borne on angels wings to heaven,

We the summons will obey.
