PRAYER FOR MINISTERS




Father of mercies, bow thine ear,
Attentive to our earnest prayer;
We plead for those who plead for thee,
Successful pleader may they be!


How great their work, how vast their charge,
Do thou their anxious souls enlarge;
Their best acquirements are our gain,
We share the blessings they obtain.


Clothe thou with energy divine
Their words, and let those words be thine;
To them thy sacred truth reveal,
Suppress their fear, inflame their zeal.


Teach them aright to sow the seed,
Teach them thy chosen flock to feed;
Teach them immortal souls to gain,
Nor let them labour, Lord, in vain.


Let thronging multitudes around,
Hear from their lips the joyful sound;
In humble strains thy grace adore,
And feel thy new-creating power.


Let sinners break their massy chains,
Distressed souls forget their pains,
And light through distant realms be spread,
Till Zion rears her drooping head.


---Alternative verses---


Oh, clothe with energy divine
Their words; and let those words be thine;
To them thy sacred truth reveal;
Suppress their fear, inflame their zeal.


Teach them to sow the precious seed;
Teach them thy chosen flock to feed;
Teach them immortal souls to gain,
And thus reward their toil and pain.


Let thronging multitudes around
Hear from their lips the joyful sound,
In humble strains thy grace implore,
And feel thy Spiritís living power.


Clothe thou with energy divine
Their words, and let those words be thine;
Teach them immortal souls to gain,
Not let them labour, Lord, in vain.


Let thronging multitudes around,
Hear from their lips the joyful sound;
And light through distant realms be spread,
Till Zion rears her drooping head.†


How great their work, how vast their charge,
Do thou their anxious souls enlarge;
Their best endowments are our gain,
We share the blessings they obtain.
