1 Lord Jesus, with Thy presence bless,
By land and sea, Thy witnesses;
In every danger them defend,
In every trial prove their Friend.

2 O may Thy Word in Christendom
Be blest and may Thy Kingdom come;
And may Thy servants joyful bring
New spoils, each day, to Thee, their King.

3 Thy thoughts of peace o’er us fulfill,
Incline our hearts to do Thy will,
Thy Gospel make more fully known,
May all the world Thy goodness own.
