518. All Glory, Honor, Thanks, and Praise

1 All glory, honor, thanks, and praise
to Christ our Lord and Savior,
that still his church in these our days
may know his boundless favor:
for brothers and sisters united by love
stand firm o'er the earth far extended,
as countless more legions in heaven above
extol how his grace them attended.

2 Yet, Lord, you summon us anew
to grasp the task unfinished.
Christ's saving word, forever true,
must press on undiminished.
O raise up still more, Savior God,
in our day apostles to carry salvation
so that its almighty and life-giving ray
may brightly shine forth in each nation.
