Representative Text

1 Lord, we come before Thee,
In our Saviour’s name,
For Thy chosen people
Blessing now to claim:
Send the “showers of blessing”
On each Jewish head,
To the Cross of Jesus
Be each lost one led.

Father, bless and save them,
Israel’s sons, we pray;
Turn to joy their bondage,
Turn their night to day.

2 Satan doth enslave them,—
Blinds them to Thy word;
Oh! do Thou convict them;
By Thy Spirit’s Sword;
Send Thy promised Spirit,
Break their chains of sin,
Bid them trust in Jesus,
Call each lost one in. [Chorus]

3 O’er the wide world scattered,
Yet they still are Thine,
May Thy glorious Day-star
In their darkness shine:
Though in every country
Far from Thee they roam,
Saviour, seek and find them,
Bring each lost one home. [Chorus]
