Words by Henry James Buckoll (1803-1871)


A hymn for the end of a school term


1.  Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing,

Thanks for mercies past receive;

Pardon all, their faults confessiong;

Time that’s lost may all retrieve;

May Thy children

Ne’er again Thy Spirit grieve.

2.  Bless Thou all our days of leisure;

Help us selfish lures to flee;

Sanctify our every pleasure;

Pure and blameless may it be;

May our gladness

Draw us evermore to Thee.

3.  By Thy kindly influence cherish

All the good we have here gained;

May all taint of evil perish,

By Thy mightier power restrained;

Seek we ever

Knowledge pure and love unfeigned.

4.  Let Thy Father-hand be shielding

All who here shall meet no more;

May their seed-time past be yielding

Year by year a richer store;

Those returning

Make more faithful than before.
