1.  A parting hymn we sing

Around Thy table, Lord;

Again our grateful tribute bring,

Our solemn vows record.

2.  Here have we seen Thy face,

And felt Thy presence here;

So may the savior of Thy grace

In word and life appear.

3.  The purchase of Thy blood,

By sin no longer led,

Then path our Redeemer trod

May we rejoicing tread.

4.  In self-forgetting love

Be our communion shown,

Until we join the Church above,

And know as we are known.
