1 Dear Savior, bless the children
Who've gathered here today;
Oh, send Thy Holy Spirit,
And teach us how to pray.

2 Dear Lord, wilt Thou not help us
Obey Thy great command,
And send the blessed gospel
Abroad through ev'ry land?

3 May missionaries carry
The message of Thy love,
The wonderful salvation
Christ brought us from above.

4 Lord, bless the work we're doing,
Oh, bless our gifts, though small,
And hear our prayer for Jesus' sake,
Who died to save us all.
