BenedictionAs Written:Bene

May the divine blessing rest on this congregation, make them willing in the day of his power and transform the body by the renewing of Spirit Casting aside the environments that would encumber the free spirit takeing in the wide wonder, divine Love, and feeling the power of Truth may we go hence from this hall to watch and work for Thee and Them

To work and wait patiently in the din of battle until permitted to join the happy throng who have passed on before us and to eat the bread of heaven anew in Thy kingdom evermore

To work and wait patiently in the turmoil of life din of battle until permitted to join the happy throng who have passed on before us and to eat the bread of heaven anew in Thy kingdom evermore
