510. Savior, Sprinkle Many Nations

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.
