Sent forth by God’s blessing, our true faith confessing,
The people of God from this dwelling take leave.

The seed of the teaching, receptive souls reaching,
Shall blossom in action for God and for all.
God’s grace did invite us, and love shall unite us
To work for God’s kingdom and answer the call.
