Gathered are we in the name of our God,
Lord, give us souls, Lord, give us souls;
Trusting His grace and His wonderful Word,
Lord, give us souls, we pray.

Refrain

Seals to our labor, and souls for our hire,
This blessèd Lord, is our one great desire;
Souls for whom Jesus His precious life gave,
Lord, give us souls, we pray.

Loved ones are lost, and our friends are astray,
Lord, give us souls, Lord, give us souls;
Help us to win them while yet it is day,
Lord, give us souls, we pray.

Refrain

Come, Holy Ghost, on Thy people descend,
Lord, give us souls, Lord, give us souls;
Make our hearts holy, Thy kingdom extend,
Lord, give us souls, we pray.

Refrain

Harvest is passing, yes, soon ’twill be gone,
Lord, give us souls, Lord, give us souls;
Bring us at last to our heavenly home,
Lord, give us souls, we pray.
