1 With Thine own pity, Savior, see
The thronged and darkening way!
We go to win the lost to Thee,
O help us, Lord, we pray!

2 Thou bidd'st us go with Thee to stand
Against hell’s marshalled powers;
And heart to heart, and hand to hand,
To make Thine honor ours.

3 Teach Thou our lips of Thee to speak,
Of Thy great love to tell;
Till they who wander far shall seek
And find and serve Thee well.

4 O’er all the world Thy Spirit send,
And make Thy goodness known,
Till earth and heaven together blend
Their praises at Thy throne.
