Representative Text

1 Lord Jesus, you have come
a teacher sent from heaven
and by both word and deed
God's truth to us have given.
You wisely have ordained
the holy ministry
that we, your flock, may know
the truth that sets us free.

2 O blessed ministry
of reconciliation,
that shows the way to God
and brings to us salvation!
Lord, by your gospel pure,
you bless and keep your fold,
you call, enlighten, keep,
you comfort and uphold.

3 Preserve this ministry
while harvest days are keeping;
and since the fields are ripe
and hands are few for reaping,
send workers forth, O Lord,
the sheaves to gather in
that not a soul be lost
which you have come to win.

4 The servants you have called
and to your Church are giving
preserve in doctrine pure
and holiness of living.
Your Spirit fill their hearts
and charge their words with pow'r;
what they should boldly speak,
O give them in that hour!

5 Bring those into your fold
who still to you are strangers;
guard those who are within
against offense and dangers.
Press onward with your Word
till pastor and his fold
through faith in you, O Christ,
your glory shall behold.
