Modern language

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,
Travelling through this wilderness.

Thanks we give, and adoration
For your gospel's joyful sound:
May the fruits of your salvation
In our hearts and lives abound!
Ever faithful, ever faithful
To the truth may we be found!

So when e'er the signal's given
Us from earth to call away,
Born on angel's wings to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey
May we ever, may we ever
Reign with Christ in endless day!

Traditional language

Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing;
Fill our hearts with joy and peace;
Let us each, thy love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming grace:
O refresh us, O refresh us,
Travelling through 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 when e'er the signal's given
Us from earth to call away,
Born on angel's wings to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey
May we ever, may we ever
Reign with Christ in endless day!
