1. Thou who the night in prayer didst spend 
And then didst Thine apostles send 
And bidd’st us pray the harvest’s Lord 
To send forth sowers of Thy Word, 
Hear and Thy chosen servants bless 
With sev’nfold gifts of holiness. 

2. Oh, may Thy pastors faithful be, 
Not lab’ring for themselves, but Thee! 
Give grace to feed with wholesome food 
The sheep and lambs bought by Thy blood, 
To tend Thy flock, and thus to prove 
How dearly they the Shepherd love. 

3. Oh, may Thy people faithful be 
And in Thy pastors honor Thee 
And with them work and for them pray 
And gladly Thee in them obey, 
Receive the prophet of the Lord 
And gain the prophet’s own reward! 

4. So may we when our work is done 
Together stand before Thy throne 
And joyful hearts and voices raise 
In one united song of praise, 
With all the bright celestial host, 
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
