Here is a closing commissioning and blessing based on Psalm 130.  It was written by Jeff Shrowder, and posted on The Billabong.

Sending
(based on Psalm 130)

Wait for the LORD,
I wait with deep longing;
and in his word I stand, waiting in hope.
Hope in the LORD!
For with the LORD there is steadfast love, 
and with the LORD is great power to save.
Go into the world with assurance, hope and promise:
the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ rest upon you;
the love of God, creator and giver of life, embrace you;
and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit uphold you,
this day and all your days. Amen.
