1.  With thine own pity, Savior, see

The thronged and darkening way!

We go to win the lost to thee;

O, help us, Lord, we pray!

2.  Thou bidst us go with thee to stand

Against hell’s marshalled powers;

And heart to heart, and hand to hand,

To make thine honor ours.

3.  Teach thou our lips of thee to speak,

Of thy sweet love to tell,

Till they who wander far shall seek

And find and serve thee well.

4.  O’er all the world thy spirit send,

And make thy goodness known,

Till earth and heaven together blend

Their praises at thy throne.
