Verse 1
With the sweet word of peace
We bid our brethren go;
Peace, as a river, to increase
And ceaseless flow.

Verse 2
With the calm word of prayer
We earnestly commend
Our brethren to Thy watchful care,
Eternal Friend!

Verse 3
With the dear word of love
We give our brief farewell;
Our love below, and Thine above
With them shall dwell.

Verse 4
With the strong word of faith
We stay ourselves on Thee,
That Thou, O Lord, in life and death
Their help shall be.

Verse 5
Then the bright word of hope
Shall on our parting gleam,
And tell of joys beyond the scope
Of earth-born dream.

Verse 6
Farewell; in hope and love,
In faith, and peace, and prayer,
Till He whose home is ours above
Unite us there.
