What praise to Thee, my Saviour,

Is due for every favor,

E’en for my daily food;

Each crumb  Thou dost allow me,

With gratitude shall bow me,

Accounting all for me too good.

1.  They who Jesus’ followers are,

And enjoy His faithful care,

By a mutual, hearty love,

Their belief in Jesus prove.

2.  They’re delighted, when they all,

With one voice on Jesus call;

And when fitly, without strife,

Each his duty doth in life.

3.  Meek they are to all mankind,

To good offices inclined,

Ready, when reviled, to bless,

Studious of the public peace.

4.  Tender pity, love sincere

To their enemies they bear;

And, as Christ affords them light,

Order all their steps aright.

5.  May it to the world appear,

That we Thy disciples are,

By our loving mutually,

By our being one in Thee.

1.  O grant Thy servants, through Thy grace,

An understanding heart,

Thy dealings with Thy Church to trace,

And counsel to impart.

2.  With heavenly wisdom us endow,

Thy peace O may we feel;

Presence of mind on us bestow,

To execute Thy will.

3.  Thus, strengthened in the inner man,

Supported by Thy aid,

We shall Thy gracious aim obtain,

And in Thy path proceed.

1.  Ye who called to Christ’s service are,

Join together, both in work and prayer;

Venture all on Him, our Lord,

Who assures us in His Word,

We are always

Objects of His care.

2.  Showers of blessing

From the Lord proceed,

Strength supplying

In the time of need;

For no servant of our King

Ever lacked anything.

He will never

Break the bruised reed.

3.  Lord, have mercy

On each land and place,

Where Thy servants

Preach the word of grace;

Life and power on them bestow,

Them with needful strength endow,

That with boldness

They may Thee confess.

4.  May we faithful

In our service be,

Truly careful

In our ministry;

Keep us to Thy Church fast bound,

In the faith preserve us sound,

Often weeping

Grateful tears ‘fore Thee.

1.  Lord, grant us, though deeply abased with shame,

With true Christian courage to act in Thy Name;

In Thy blessed work may we always abound,

And let with success all our labor be crowned.

2.  Give grace, that as brethren we join hands in love,

Engaging to Thee ever faithful to prove,

Whate’er to Thy service appointed we stand,

To sow or to reap at Thy call and command.
