Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing,
Thanks for mercies past receive;
Pardon all, their faults confessing;
Time that's lost may all retrieve;
May thy children
Ne'er again thy Spirit grieve.

Bless thou all are days of leisure,
Help us selfish lures to flee;
Sanctify our every pleasure;
Pure and blameless may it be;
May our gladness
Draw us evermore to thee.

By thy kindly influence cherish
All the good we here have gained;
May all taint of evil perish
By thy mightier power restrained;
Seek we ever
Knowledge pure and love unfeigned.

Let thy Father-hand be shielding
All who here shall meet no more;
May their seed-time past be yielding
Year by year a richer store;
Those returning
Make more faithful than before.
