1 Jesus, Master, Son of God,
Rich in gifts for human good,
Giv'n Thyself for us, for all,
Thou dost many servants call.
2 By Thy mercy and Thy love,
Through Thy Spirit from above,
Plenteous grace to each is given,
Grace to serve the Lord of heaven.
3 Thanks for those devoted bands,
Who, with earnest hearts and hands,
Wait and work the sick to cheer,
Spreading mercies far and near.
4 While the sacred cross they bear,
Grant them Thy rewards to share;
Be their Help where'er they go,
Bearing balm for human woe.
5 Guide and bless them on their way;
Let Thy Spirit be their stay;
May their numbers, Lord, increase,
Bring them to Thy heavenly peace.
