1 Pour out Your Spirit from on high;
Lord, Your ordained servants bless;
graces and gifts to each supply,
and clothe Your priests with righteousness.
2 Within the temple when they stand
to teach the gospel full and free,
Saviour, like stars in Your right hand
the angels of the churches be.
3 Wisdom and zeal and faith impart,
firmness with meekness, from above,
to bear Your people on their heart,
and love the souls You hold in love.
4 To watch and pray and never faint,
by day and night strict guard to keep,
to warn the sinner, cheer the saint,
nourish Your lambs and feed Your sheep.
5 Then when their work is finished here,
in humble hope their work is done,
when the Chief Shepherd shall appear,
in Him may they and we be one.
