Lyrics

O God of all-redeeming grace,
Hasten those latest, happiest days,
When Thy dispersed shall be brought home:
Obedient to the Gospel word,
O let the people of our Lord
From earth’s remotest corners come!

With humble prayers and contrite sighs,
A well-accepted sacrifice,
To Thee their souls and bodies give,
Thy perfect will rejoice to prove,
And live the life of holy love,
And only for Thy glory live!
