1 Lord of the harvest, meet this hour,
The servants of thy holy word:
Baptize us with thy Spirit's power,
While here we wait with one accord.
2 Through all the conflicts of the year,
'Mid all the storms and ills we bore,
Thy gracious help was ever near,
But still we need thee more and more.
3 Preside thou o'er our business here;
Give light and wisdom from above;
Direct us, keep us, in thy fear,
And bind us close with cords of love.
4 O make us holy men of God,
And faithful messengers of grace,
That we may lead to Jesus' blood
The lost and ruined of our race.
