4273. Missionary Prayer Hymn

1. Our Father in Heav’n,
On Thee we do call;
Thy Son Thou hast given,
A Savior for all;
But thousands are dying,
Who know not the Lord,
For them we are praying,
O send them Thy Word.

The call is great, but in Thy strength
We hasten forth, most gracious Lord,
For thousands die each day and hour,
Who know not Thee, O send Thy Word.

2. For India we pray,
Where millions are taught
To follow the way
Which evil hath wrought;
We, knowing the Savior,
Whose Word is at hand,
O God, may we labor,
To harvest their land. [Refrain]

3. For China we pray, O hasten the time
When bright as the day
The Gospel will shine;
When parents and children
On Jesus shall call,
When all that is hindering
Before Him shall fall. [Refrain]

4. May Africa’s name
No longer be dark,
Wide spread by the flame
From martyrdom’s spark;
May Christians endeavor
To furnish the light,
Both now and forever
Establish Thy sight. [Refrain]

5. From east unto west,
From north unto south,
May nations Thee bless
With heart and with mouth;
Then, Jesus returning
To call home His own,
Brands plucked from the burning
Shall circle His throne. [Refrain]
