Benediction: Psalm 124


Here’s a closing commission and benediction which uses Psalm 124 as its refrain.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Benediction
(inspired by Psalm 124)

Go in peace to enjoy and employ your gift of faith.
Our help is in the name of God who made heaven and earth.

Fear neither outward foe nor inner temptation.
Our help is in the name of God who made heaven and earth

Rejoice in your blessings and smile in your adversities.
Our help is in the name of God who made heaven and earth.

The inexhaustible grace of Christ crucified,
the tireless, eternal love of God,
and the live-in Guest who fills household of faith with many gifts,
will be with you this day and for evermore.
Amen!
