HYMN LVII. Prayer for JMinisters. Fo of mercies! bow thine ear, Attentive to our earnest prayer ; We plead for those who plead for thee, Successful pleaders may they be! 2 How great their work, how vast their charge! Do thou their anxious souls enlarge ; Their best acquirements are our gain, We share the blessings they obtain. 3 Clothe, then, with energy divine Their words, and let those words be thine; To them thy sacred truth reveal, Suppress their fear, inflame their zeal. 4 Teach them to sow the precious seed, Teach them thy chosen flock to feed; Teach them immortal souls to gain—Z Souls that will well reward their pain. 5 Let thronging multitudes around, Hear from their lips the joyful sound; In humble strains thy grace implore, And feel thy new-ereating power. 6 Let sinners break their massy chains, Distressed souls forget their pains; Let light through distant realms be spread, And Zion rear her drooping head.
Whilst with a grateful heart we share
