Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing, Fill our hearts with joy and peace

Representative Text

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 the gospel's joyful sound:
may the fruits of your salvation
in our hearts and lives abound!
Ever faithful, ever faithful
to your truth may we be found.

3 So whene'er the signal's given
us from earth to call away,
borne on angels' wings to heaven,
glad the summons to obey,
may we ever, may we ever
reign with Christ in endless day.
