(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing,
Fill our hearts with joy and peace;
Let us each, Thy love possessing, Triumph in redeeming grace:
Triumph in redeeming grace:
O refresh us, O refresh us,
Trav’ling thru this wilderness.
Thanks we give and adoration
For Thy gospel’s joyful sound;
May the fruits of Thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound;
Ever faithful, ever faithful
To the truth may we be found —
So that when Thy love shall call us,
Savior, from the wold away,
Fear of death shall not appall us;
Glad Thy summons to obey.
May we ever, may we ever
Reign with Thee in endless day.
