Go now in peace; though friends must part,
your presence lives in every heart.
Your gifts to us no words can tell:
go now in peace, in Christ, go well.
Go now in hope, and hopeful stay,
though shadowed valleys hide your way;
through good and evil, joy and pain,
with God, in Spirit, you remain.
Go now in faith, through time and chance,
until we join the wedding dance
as partners of the Three-in-One,
where all is ended and begun.
