289. Lord Grant Us, Though Deeply Abased

1 Lord, grant us, though deeply abased with shame,
With true Christian courage to act in Thy name;
In thy blessed work may we always abound,
And let with success all our labor be crowned.

2 Give grace, that as brethren we join hands in love,
Engaging to Thee ever faithful to prove,
Where’er to Thy service appointed we stand,
To sow or to reap at Thy call and command.
