Speed Thy servants Saviour Speed them




Speed Thy servants,
Savior, speed them;
Thou art Lord of winds and waves;
They were bound,
but Thou hast freed them;
Now they go to free the slaves:
|: Be Thou with them,
ítis Thine arm alone that saves. :|


Friends, and home,
and all forsaking,
Lord they go at Thy command,
As their stay Thy promise taking,
While they traverse sea and land:
|: O be with them;
lead them safely by the hand. :|


Speed them through
the mighty ocean,
In the dark and stormy day;
When the waves in wild commotion
Fill all others with dismay,
|: Be thou with them,
Drive their terrors far away. :|


When they reach
the land of strangers,
And the prospect dark appears,
Nothing seen but toils and dangers,
Nothing felt but doubts and fears,
|: Be Thou with them,
hear their sighs and count their tears. :|


When they think of home,
now dearer
Than it ever seemed before,
Bring the promised glory nearer,
Let them see that peaceful shore,
|: Where thy people
Rest from toil, and weep no more. :|


When no fruit appears
to cheer them,
And they seem to toil in vain,
Then in mercy, Lord, draw near them,
Then their sinking hopes sustain:
|: Thus supported,
let their zeal revive again. :|


In the midst of opposition
Let them trust, O Lord, in Thee;
When success attends their mission,
Let Thy servants humbler be:
|: Never leave them
till Thy face in heavín they see. :|


There to reap in joy forever,
Fruit that grows from seed here sown;
There to be with Him, Who never
Ceases to preserve His own;
|: And with gladness
give the praise to Him alone. :|
