1. Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing,
Send it down from heaven above;
May we all go home a-praising
And rejoicing in thy love.
Farewell, brethren, farewell, sisters,
Till we all shall meet above.

2. Pardon, Lord, now all our follies
While together we have been;
Make us humble, make us holy,
Cleanse us all from every sin.
Farewell, brethren, farewell, sisters,
Till we all shall meet again.

3. May thy presence, Lord, go with us,
To each one's respective home;
And the presence of our Jesus
Rest upon us, every one.
Farewell, brethren, farewell, sisters,
Till we all shall meet at home.
