PASTORS THE GIFT OF CHRIST




Jesus ascends above the skies,
And pours his blessings down;
‘Tis thence his church receives supplies,
From him and him alone.


The various gifts on men bestowed,
And by his power ordained,
Are all the purchase of his blood,
The trophies he has gained.


He sits a sovereign to command,
His heralds know his voice;
They in obedient posture stand,
And in his strength rejoice.


Beneath his blessing and his care,
Shall they successful prove;
His church shall flourish strong and fair,
Enriched with faith and love.


Thus shall his glorious cause increase,
Till earth resembles heaven;
By him who is the God of peace
Shall Satan hence be driven.
