     1 And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of shittim wood shalt thou make it. 2 A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall be the height thereof: the horns thereof shall be of the same. 3 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round about. 4 And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make it; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it withal. 5 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold. 6 And thou shalt put it before the veil that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee. 7 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it. 8 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your generations. 9 Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon. 10 And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.(KJV)

1. Pour out Thy Spirit from on high, 
Lord, Thine assembled servants bless; 
Graces and gifts to each supply 
And clothe Thy priests with righteousness. 

2. Before Thine altar when we stand 
To teach the truth as taught by Thee, 
Savior, like stars in Thy right hand 
The angels of Thy churches be. 

3. Wisdom and zeal and faith impart, 
Firmness with meekness, from above, 
To bear Thy people on our heart 
And love the souls whom Thou dost love; 

4. To watch and pray and never faint 
By day and night strict guard to keep, 
To warn the sinner, cheer the saint, 
Nourish Thy lambs, and feed Thy sheep. 

5. Then, when our work is finished here, 
We may in hope our charge resign. 
When the Chief Shepherd shall appear, 
O God, may they and we be Thine!
