The praying companies attend,
And show thyself the sinner's Friend.

3 Pour out thy Spirit on thy sons,
And visit thine anointed ones;
May every virgin trim her lamp,
And glory rest upon our camp.

4 May prayer and praise united rise,
Like holy incense, to the skies;
In all the camp display thy power,
That souls be saved each day and hour.
