Arise, O Lord, exalt Thy grace

Full Text

1 Arise, O Lord, exalt Thy grace,
Thy precious Gospel spread,
That for the travail of Thy soul
Thou mayst behold Thy seed.
O may Thy knowledge fill the earth;
Increase the number still
Of those who in Thy Word believe
And do Thy holy will.

2 Lord, by Thy Spirit us prepare
To follow Thy command,
To execute Thine utmost aim,
And in Thy presence stand,
As servants willing to be used,
Who in Thy work delight
And offer freely praise and prayer
As incense day and night.

3 Hereto we gladly say, Amen;
We have this truth avowed,
That we in spirit, body, soul
Are bound to serve our God,
Who touched, and drew, and wooed our hearts,
And conquered us by love;
To Him we have engages ourselves.
O may we faithful prove.
