	1. Lord of the harvest, hear
	Thy needy servants' cry;
	Answer our faith's effectual prayer
	And all our wants supply.
	2. On Thee we humbly wait,
	Our wants are in Thy view.
	The harvest, truly, Lord, is great,
	The laborers are few.
	3. Anoint and send forth more
	Into Thy Church abroad
	And let them speak Thy Word of Power
	As workers with their God.
	4. Oh, let them spread Thy name,
	Their mission fully prove,
	Thy universal grace proclaim,
	Thine all-redeeming love!
