1
JESUS, grant us all a blessing,
Send it down, Lord, from above;
May we all return home a praying,
And rejoicing in thy love.
Farewel, Brethren, farewel, Sisters,
Till we all shall meet again.

Jesus, pardon all our follies,
Since together we have been;
Make us humble, make us holy,
Cleanse us all from ev'ry sin.
Farewel, Brethren, farewel, Sisters,
Till we all shall meet above.

May thy blessing, Lord, go with us
To each one's respective home;
And the presence of our Jesus,
Rest upon us ev'ry one.
Farewel, Brethren, farewel, Sisters,
Till we all shall meet at home.
