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.

A hymn for the beginning of a school term

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Lord, behold us with Thy blessing,

Once again assembled here;

Onward be our footsteps pressing,

In Thy love, and faith, and fear;

Still protect us

By Thy presence ever near.

2.  For Thy mercy we adore Thee,

For this rest upon our way;

Lord, again we bow before Thee,

Speed our labours day by day;

Mind and spirit

With Thy choicest gifts array.

3.  Keep the spell of home affection

Still alive in every heart;

May its power, with mild direction,

Draw our love from self apart,

Till Thy children

Feel that Thou their Father art.

4.  Break temptation’s fatal power,

Shielding all with guardian care,

Safe in every careless hour,

Safe from sloth and sensual snare;

Thou, our Saviour,

Still our failing strength repair.
