MAY THE GRACE OF CHRIST.
8s. & 7s. REV. JOHN NEWTON, (1725—1807) 1779. 1 May the grace of Christ our Savior,
And the Father's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favor,
Rest upon us from above ! 2 Thus may we abide in union
With each other and the Lord, And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth cannot afford.
LORD, DISMISS US.
88. & 7s. REV. ROBERT HAWKER, (1753—1827) 1774. 1 Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing ;
Bid us now depart in peace ; Still on heavenly manna feeding,
Let our faith and love increase. 2 Fill each breast with consolation ;
Up to Thee our hearts we raise ; When we reach our blissful station,
Then we'll give Thee nobler praise.

Watching for Thy glad returning Where Thy light I do not see.
To restore me to my home.
