LET thy Kingdom, blessed Saviour,

Come and bid our jarring cease;

Come, O come, and reign forever-

Lord of life and Prince of Peace:

Visit now thy bleeding Zion,

Lo! thy people mourn and weep;

Day and night thy flock is crying,

Gracious shepherd, feed thy sheep.

Some for Paul-some for Apollos-

Some for Cephas- few agree,

With thy holy word that calls us,

Or resolve to follow thee:

Lord, in us there is no merit,

At thy name our hearts do leap:

Guide us by thy holy Spirit,

Till in death our souls shall sleep.

Come, blest Lord, with courage arm us,

Persecution rages here;

Nought, we know, can ever harm us,

If our Shepherd be but near:

Glory, glory, be to Jesus!

At his name our hearts do leap;

He both comforts us, and saves us;

Gracious shepherd, bless thy sheep.

Hail, thou prince of our salvation!

Ever will we be thy flock;

Thou the church's sure foundation,

And the everlasting rock:

May we shun the paths of folly,

Scale the high, the arduous steep,

Look to thee and still be holy;

Gracious Shepherd, bless thy sheep.
