1.  Jesus, Master, Son of God,

Rich in gifts for human good,

Given Thyself for us, for all,

Thou dost many servants call.

2.  By Thy mercy and Thy love,

Through Thy Spirit from above,

Plenteous grace to each is given–

Grace to serve the Lord of heaven.

3.  Thanks for those devoted hands,

Who, with earnest hearts and hands,

Wait and work the sick to cheer,

Spreading mercies far and near.

4.  While the sacred cross they bear,

Grant them Thy rewards to share;

Be their Help where’er they go,

Bearing balm for human woe.

5.  Guide and bless them on their way;

Let Thy Spirit be their stay;

May their numbers, Lord, increase,

Bring them to Thy heavenly peace.
