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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
