1 We pray for those who do not pray!
Who waste, O Lord, salvation’s day;
For those we love who love not Thee—
Our grief, their danger, pitying see.

2 Those for whom many tears are shed,
And blessings breathed upon their head;
The children of Thy people save,
From godless life and hopeless grave.

3 Hear fathers, mothers, as they pray
For sons, for daughters far away—
Brother for brother, friend for friend—
Hear all our prayers that upwards blend.

4 We pray for those who long have heard,
But still neglect Thy gracious Word;
Soften the hearts obdurate made
By calls unheeded, vows delayed.

5 Release the drunkard from his chain,
Save those beguiled by pleasure vain,
Set free the slaves of lust, and bring
Back to their home the wandering.

6 The hopeless cheer; guide those who doubt;
Restore the lost; cast no one out;
For all that are far off we pray,
Since we were once far off as they.
