88. L. M. H. Ballou. Dismission.
1 From worship, now, thy church dismiss --
But not without thy blessing, Lord;
O grant a taste of heavenly bliss,
And seal instruction from thy word.
2 Oft may these pleasant scenes return
When we shall meet to worship thee;
Oft may our hearts within us burn
To hear thy word, thy goodness see.
3 And when these pleasant scenes are past,
To thee, our God, O may we come,
And meet th' assembled world at last,
In Zion, our eternal home.
