O Lord, Who in Thy Love Divine

Author: C. Wordsworth, 1807-85 Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary #505 (1996) Meter: 8.8.8.8.8.8 Hymnal Title: Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary Lyrics: 1 O Lord, Who in Thy love divine Didst safely leave the ninety-nine, In pity for a world undone, And gav'st Thy life to save the one, And didst it on Thy shoulders bear In joy to heav'n, receive our prayer. 2 Thou who the night in pray'r didst spend And then Thy Twelve Apostles send; And bidd'st us pray the harvest's Lord To send forth sowers of the Word, Hear us and these Thy servants bless With sev'nfold gifts of holiness. 3 Look down, with gracious eye behold, With watchful care protect Thy fold; Secure from hireling shepherds keep, Which feed themselves, and not the sheep, And when the prowling wolf is nigh, Forsake the flock in fear and fly. 4 O Thou, who didst at Pentecost Send down from heav'n the Holy Ghost That He might with Thy Church abide Forever to defend and guide, Illuminate and strengthen, Lord, The preachers of Thy holy Word. 5 May all Thy pastors faithful be; Not lab'ring for themselves, but Thee; And may they feed with wholesome food The sheep and lambs bought by Thy blood; Tending Thy flock, O may they prove How dearly they the Shepherd love! 6 That which the Holy Scriptures teach, That, and that only, may they preach; May they the true foundation lay, Build gold thereon, not wood or hay; And meekly preach in days of strife The sermon of a holy life. 7 As ever in Thy holy eyes, And stewards of Thy mysteries, May they the people teach to see Not, Lord, Thy ministers, but Thee; To see a loving Savior's face Revealed in all the means of grace. 8 May they Thy Word with boldness speak And bear with tenderness the weak; Not seeking their own things as best, But what may edify the rest; With wisdom and simplicity And, most of all, with charity. 9 O may Thy people faithful be, And in Thy pastors honor Thee, And working with them for them pray, And gladly Thee in them obey; Receive the prophet of the Lord And gain the prophet's own reward. 10 So may we, when our work is done, Together stand before the throne; And joyful hearts and voices raise, In one united song of praise, With all the bright celestial host, To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

O Lord, Who in Thy Love Divine

Author: Christopher Wordsworth Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #5164 Meter: 8.8.8.8.8.8 Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal Lyrics: 1. O Lord, who in Thy love divine Didst leave in Heaven the ninety-nine, In pity for a world undone, And gav’st Thy life to save the one, And didst it on Thy shoulders bear In joy to Heaven, receive our prayer. 2. Thou who the night in prayer didst spend And then didst Thine apostles send And bidd’st us pray the harvest’s Lord To send forth sowers of Thy Word, Hear and Thy chosen servants bless With sev’nfold gifts of holiness. 3. Look down, with gracious eye behold, With watchful care protect Thy fold; Secure from hireling shepherds keep, Which feed themselves, and not the sheep, And when the prowling wolf is nigh, Forsake the flock in fear and fly. 4. O Thou, who didst at Pentecost Send down from Heaven the Holy Ghost That He might with Thy Church abide Forever to defend and guide, Illuminate and strengthen, Lord, The preachers of Thy holy Word. 5. Oh, may Thy pastors faithful be, Not lab’ring for themselves, but Thee! Give grace to feed with wholesome food The sheep and lambs bought by Thy blood, To tend Thy flock, and thus to prove How dearly they the Shepherd love. 6. That which the holy Scriptures teach, That, and that only, may they preach; May they the true Foundation lay, Build gold thereon, not wood or hay; And meekly preach in days of strife The sermon of a holy life. 7. As ever in Thy holy eyes, And stewards of Thy mysteries, May they the people teach to see Not, Lord, Thy ministers, but Thee; To see a loving Savior’s face Revealed in all the means of grace. 8. May they Thy Word with boldness speak And bear with tenderness the weak; Not seeking their own things as best, But what may edify the rest; With wisdom and simplicity And, most of all, with clarity. 9. Oh, may Thy people faithful be And in Thy pastors honor Thee And with them work and for them pray And gladly Thee in them obey, Receive the prophet of the Lord And gain the prophet’s own reward! 10. So may we, when our work is done Together stand before Thy throne And joyful hearts and voices raise In one united song of praise, With all the bright celestial host, To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
