     1 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 2 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. 3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. 4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: 5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. 6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: 7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. 8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 9 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.(KJV)

1. Spread, oh, spread, thou mighty Word, 
Spread the kingdom of the Lord, 
Wheresoe’er His breath has giv’n 
Life to beings meant for heav’n. 

2. Tell them how the Father’s will 
Made the world and keeps it still, 
How His only Son He gave 
Man from sin and death to save. 

3. Tell of our Redeemer’s love, 
Who forever doth remove 
By His holy sacrifice 
All the guilt that on us lies. 

4. Tell them of the Spirit giv’n 
Now to guide us up to heav’n, 
Strong and holy, just and true, 
Working both to will and do. 

5. Up! The ripening fields ye see. 
Mighty shall the harvest be; 
But the reapers still are few, 
Great the work they have to do. 

6. Lord of Harvest, let there be 
Joy and strength to work for Thee 
Till the nations far and near 
See Thy light and learn Thy fear.
