488. Lord of the Harvest, Hear

1 Lord of the harvest, hear
Thy needy servants’ cry;
Answer our faith’s effectual prayer,
And all our needs supply.

2 On Thee we humbly wait,
Our wants are in Thy view,
The harvest, truly, Lord, is great,
The laborers are few.

3 Anoint and send forth more
Into Thy Church abroad
And let them speak Thy Word of Pow'r
As workers with their God.

4 Oh, let them spread Thy name,
Their mission fully prove,
Thy universal grace proclaim,
Thine all-redeeming love!
