Text and translations
Rippon, Selection, 1787
1. 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!
Traveling through this wilderness.
2. Thanks we give and adoration,
For thy gospel's joyful sound,
May the fruits of thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound!
May thy presence
With us evermore be found!
3 So, whene'er the signal's given,
Us from earth to call away;
Borne on angels wings to heaven,
Glad to leave our cumbrous clay,
May we ready,
Rise and reign in endless day.
