1 As “together with Thee” working,
Lord, we would Thy blessing have,
Longing for Thy hand to stay us,
For Thy cheer to make us brave;
We would witness of Thy gospel,
We would tell of Thy great might,
Hoping to present our people,
“Each one perfect in Thy sight.”
2 Grant us holy love and patience,
Give us true humility,
That of self we may be emptied
And our hearts be full of Thee;
Lead us, Lord, by Thy good Spirit,
As we have been called to lead,
Feed us first on heavenly manna,
That our people we may feed.
3 Nobler than our duty growing,
Sweeter still will worship be,
Thou in all our life appearing,
All our hidden life in Thee.
Service rendered thus in weakness,
Thou wilt here accept and own,
And reward with endless glory
When we see Thee on Thy throne.
