                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Savior, sprinkle many nations,
        Fruitful let Thy sorrows be;
        By Thy pains and consolations
        Draw the Gentiles unto Thee.
        Of Thy Cross the wondrous story,
        Be it to the nations told;
        Let them see Thee in Thy glory
        And Thy mercy manifold.

        2. Let to mortals all be given
        Thee to know and life to gain,
        Thee, the very God of heaven,
        Thee, the Man for sinners slain.
        Speak Thou hope to ev'ry mortal
        Thro' the Gospel, sweet and blest;
        Lead them thro' Thy kingdom's portal
        To eternal peace and rest.

        3. Great the need in ev'ry nation,
        Dense the darkness of sin's night;
        Let Thy Spirit bring salvation,
        Love's pure flame, and wisdom's light.
        Give the Word, Thy preachers strengthen
        With the prophets' pow'r of old,
        Help them Zion's cords to lengthen,
        All Thy wand'ring sheep to fold.
