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.Source: Hymnal for Church and Home (2nd ed.) #377
