7 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: 8 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth. 9 Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee. 10 Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. 11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.(KJV)

1. Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing, 
Fill our hearts with joy and peace. 
Let us each, Thy love possessing, 
Triumph in redeeming grace. 
Oh, refresh us, Oh, refresh us, 
Traveling through this wilderness! 

2. Thanks we give and adoration 
For Thy Gospel’s joyful sound. 
May the fruits of Thy salvation 
In our hearts and lives abound; 
Ever faithful, Ever faithful, 
To the Truth may we be found! 

3. So, when’er the signal’s given 
Us from earth to call away, 
Borne on angels’ wings to heaven, 
Glad the summons to obey, 
May we ever, May we ever, 
Reign with Christ in endless day!
