    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.
