The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send more workers into His fields.@Luke 10:2

Our Father in Heav’n,
On Thee we do call;
Thy Son Thou hast given,
A Savior for all;
But thousands are dying,
Who know not the Lord,
For them we are praying,
O send them Thy Word.

Refrain

The call is great, but in Thy strength
We hasten forth, most gracious Lord,
For thousands die each day and hour,
Who know not Thee, O send Thy Word.

For India we pray,
Where millions are taught
To follow the way
Which evil hath wrought;
We, knowing the Savior,
Whose Word is at hand,
O God, may we labor,
To harvest their land.

Refrain

For China we pray, O hasten the time
When bright as the day
The Gospel will shine;
When parents and children
On Jesus shall call,
When all that is hindering
Before Him shall fall.

Refrain

May Africa’s name
No longer be dark,
Wide spread by the flame
From martyrdom’s spark;
May Christians endeavor
To furnish the light,
Both now and forever
Establish Thy sight.

Refrain

From east unto west,
From north unto south,
May nations Thee bless
With heart and with mouth;
Then, Jesus returning
To call home His own,
Brands plucked from the burning
Shall circle His throne.
