Come through your teaching, and your healing too;
Come through the work enlightened hearts can do;

4 Your kingdom come; come too, God's glorious Son!
Oh, may our task for you be nobly done!
Faithful let all your servants be, and true,
Until they bring all nations home to you;
Until they bring all nations home to you.
