1 Father, bless thy word to all;
Quick and powerful let it prove.
Oh, may sinners hear thy call—
Let thy people grow in love;
Let thy people grown in love.
2 Thine own gracious message bless;
Follow it with power divine;
Give the gospel great success—
Thine the work the glory thine;
Thine the work, the glory thine.
3 Father, bid the world rejoice;
Send, O send thy truth abroad;
Let the nations hear thy voice—
Hear it and return to God;
Hear it and return to God.
