14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

     15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; 16 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. 17 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. 20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? 22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.(KJV)

1. Savior, sprinkle many nations, 
Fruitful let Thy sorrows be; 
By Thy pains and consolations 
Draw the Gentiles unto Thee. 
Of Thy Cross the wondrous story, 
Be it to the nations told; 
Let them see Thee in Thy glory 
And Thy mercy manifold. 

2. Let to mortals all be given 
Thee to know and life to gain, 
Thee, the very God of heaven, 
Thee, the Man for sinners slain. 
Speak Thou hope to ev’ry mortal 
Thro’ the Gospel, sweet and blest; 
Lead them thro’ Thy kingdom’s portal 
To eternal peace and rest. 

3. Great the need in ev’ry nation, 
Dense the darkness of sin’s night; 
Let Thy Spirit bring salvation, 
Love’s pure flame, and wisdom’s light. 
Give the Word, Thy preachers strengthen 
With the prophets’ pow’r of old, 
Help them Zion’s cords to lengthen, 
All Thy wand’ring sheep to fold.
