Lord, Dismiss Us with Thy Blessing

Melody - "Regent Square", Henry Smart, 1867
Alt. Melody - "New Ulm", Fritz Reuter, 1910; Seq. by Richard Jordan

John Fawcett, 1773

Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing,
Fill our hearts with joy and peace.
Let us each, Thy love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming grace.
Oh, refresh us, Oh, 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;
Ever faithful, Ever faithful,
To the Truth may we be found!

3. So, when'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!

3a. So that when thy love shall call us,
Saviour, from the world 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.

3a. is the altered version in the 1916 Episcopal Hymnal.
