As we are now about to part And from this bless'd retreat depart,
Remember then the lessons taught,
As we in love together wrought.

But we rejoice,
The Master' s Voice,
The light revealed,
Who have believed.

Around this Altar we have stood,
Where God' s great spirit' s wont to brood,
Here we have all our work reviewed,
And all our sacred vows renewed.

That we have promised in His name,
To aid each one—and if in blame,
To seek that we might palliate,
And his distress alleviate.

That we may in a gentle way,
Remind him of his faults and pray He may be strengthened by God's love,
Then to mankind God's goodness prove.

Let prudence ever be your guide,
And temperance in us preside,
So that our lives may ever tell "He liveth long who liveth well."

never let us then suppose,
As when the day draws to its close,
That all our work has been for naught,
Our rest is all too dearly bought.

For know—your work is with the Lord,
it is written in His word,
That from EIi’s wondrous opulence,
Our God will give due recompense.

And now,
my brethren,
live in peace,
That love and joy may e'er increase,
Be of one mind in all you do,
The God of peace et er dwell with you.
