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,

Trav’ling thro’ 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

To the truth may we be found!

3.  So, when’er the signal’s given

Us from earth to call away,

Borne on angel’s wings to heaven,

Glad the summons to obey,

May we ready

Rise, and reign in endless day.

1.  O Paradise, O Paradise,

Who doth not crave for rest?

Who would not seek the happy land

Where they that love are blest?

Chorus

Where loyal hearts and true

Stand ever in the light,

All rapture, thro’ and thro’,

In God’s most holy sight.

2.  O Paradise, O Paradise,

‘Tis weary waiting here;

I long to be where Jesus is,

To feel, to see him near;

Chorus

3.  O Paradise, O Paradise,

I want to sin no more,

I want be as pure on earth

As on thy spotless shore;

Chorus

4.  O Paradise, O Paradise,

I greatly long to see

The special place my dearest Lord

Is destining for me,

Chorus

5.  Lord Jesus, King of Paradise,

Oh, keep me in thy love,

And guide me to that happy land

Of perfect rest above;

Chorus

1.  I worship Thee, most gracious God,

And all Thy ways adore;

And every day I live,

I seem to love Thee more and more.

2.  When obstacles and trials seem

Like prison walls to be,

I do the little I can do,

And leave the rest to Thee.

3.  I have no cares, O blessed Will,

For all my cares are Thine;

I live in triumph, Lord for Thou

Hast made Thy triumphs mine.

4.  He always wins who sides with God;

To him no chance is lost;

God’s will is sweetest to him when

It triumphs at his cost.

5.  Ill that he blesses is our good,

And unblest good is ill;

And all is right that seems most wrong,

If it be His sweet will.

1.  Have mercy on us, God most high,

who lift our hearts to thee;

have mercy now, most merciful,

most holy Trinity.

2.  Thou wert not born; there was no fount

from which thy being flowed;

there is no end which thou canst reach;

but thou art simply God.

3.  When heaven and earth were yet unmade,

when time was yet unknown,

thou in thy bliss and majesty

didst live and love alone.

4.  How wonderful creation is,

the work that thou didst bless;

and O what then must thou be like,

eternal loveliness!

5.  Most ancient of all mysteries!

low at thy throne we lie;

have mercy now, most merciful,

most holy Trinity.

1.  My God!  how wonderful Thou art,

Thy majesty how bright!

How beautiful Thy Mercy seat

In depths of burning light!

2.  Yet, I may love Thee too, O Lord!

Almighty as Thou art;

For Thou hast stooped to ask of me

The love of my poor heart.

3.  No earthly father loves like Thee,

No mother e’er so mild,

Bears and forbears, as Thou hast done

With me, Thy sinful child.

4.  My God!  how wonderful Thou art,

Thou everlasting Friend!

On Thee I stay my trusting heart

Till faith in vision end.

1.  O Saviour, bless us ere we go;

Thy Word into our minds instill;

And make our lukewarm hearts to glow

With lowly love and fervent will.

Refrain

Through life’s long day, and death’s dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our Light.

2.  The day is done, its hours have run,

And thou has taken count of all,

The scanty triumphs grace hath won,

The broken vow, the frequent fall.

Refrain

3.  Grant us, O Lord, from evil ways

True absolution and release;

And bless us more than in past days

With purity and inward peace.

Refrain

4.  Do more than pardon:  give us joy,

Sweet fear and sober liberty,

And loving hearts without alloy,

That only long to be like Thee.

Refrain

5.  Labor is sweet for Thou hast toiled;

And care is light for Thou hast cared;

Ah, never let our works be soiled

With self, or by deceit ensnared.

Refrain

6.  For all we love, the poor, the sad,

The sinful, unto Thee we call;

O let Thy mercy make us glad;

Thou art our Jesus and our All.

Refrain
