1 Ye who called, ye who called
to Christ’s service are,
join together, join together,
both in work and prayer;
venture all on him, our Lord,
who assures us in his word,
we are always, we are always
objects of his care.
2 Showers of blessing, showers of blessing
from the Lord proceed,
strength supplying, strength supplying
in the time of need;
for no servant of our King
ever lacked for anything.
He will never, he will never
break the bruised reed.
3 Lord, have mercy, Lord, have mercy
on each land and place,
where your servants, where your servants
preach the word of grace;
life and pow'r on them bestow,
them with needful strength endow,
that with boldness, that with boldness
they may you confess.
4 May we faithful, may we faithful
in our service be,
truly careful, truly careful
in our ministry;
keep us to your church fast bound,
in the faith preserve us sound,
often weeping, often weeping
grateful tears of joy.
