CASTING THE GOSPEL NET




When Peter through the tedious night
Had often cast his net in vain;
Soon as his LORD appeared in sight
He gladly let it down again.


Once more the gospel net we cast,
Do thou, O LORD, the effort own;
We learn from disappointments past,
To rest our hope on thee alone.


Upheld by thy supporting hand,
We enter on another year;
And now we meet, at thy command,
To seek thy gracious presence here.


May this be a much favored hour,
To souls in Satanís bondage led!
O clothe thy word with sovereign powír
To break the rocks, and raise the dead!


Have mercy on our numírous youth,
Who young in years, are old in sin;
And by thy Spirit, and thy truth,
Show them the state their souls are in.


Then, by a Saviorís dying love
To every wounded heart revealed,
Temptations, fears, and guilt remove,
And be their Sun, and Strength, and Shield.


To mourners speak a cheering word,
On seeking souls vouchsafe to shine;
Let poor backsliders be restored,
And all thy saints in praises join.


O hear our prayer and give us hope,
That when thy voice shall call us home,
Thou still wilt raise a people up,
To love and praise thee in our room.
