506. Send Thou, O Lord, to Every Place

1 Send Thou, O Lord, to ev'ry place
Swift messengers before Thy face,
The heralds of Thy wondrous grace,
Where Thou Thyself wilt come.

2 Send men whose eyes have seen the King,
Men in whose ears His sweet words ring;
Send such Thy lost ones home to bring;
Send them where Thou wilt come,--

3 To bring good news to souls in sin,
The bruised and broken hearts to win;
In ev'ry place to bring them in
Where Thou Thyself wilt come.

4 Thou who hast died, Thy vict’ry claim;
Assert, O Christ, Thy glory’s name
And far to lands of pagan shame
Send men where Thou wilt come.

5 Gird each one with the Spirit’s Sword,
The sword of Thine own deathless Word,
And make them conquerors, conquering Lord,
Where Thou Thyself wilt come.

6 Raise up, O Lord the Holy Ghost,
From this broad land a mighty host;
Their war cry, "We will seek the lost
Where Thou, O Christ, wilt come."
