2  Come as a shepherd: guard and keep 4  Come as teacher: sent from God,
This fold from hell and earth and sin;         Charged His whole counsel to declare:
Nourish the lambs, and feed the sheep,      Lift o'er our ranks the prophet's rod, The wounded heal, the lost bring in.          While we uphold thy hands with prayer/
3  Come as a watchman: take thy stand 5  Come as a messenger of peace:
Upon thy tower amidst the sky;                 Filled with the Spirit, fired with love;
And when the sword comes on the land,      Live to behold our large increase, Call us to fight, or warn to fly.                 And die to meet us all above.
James Montgomery, 1825!
2  In mercy, Father, now give heed,
And pour Thy quickening Spirit's breath On those whom Thou hast called to feed Thy flock redeemed by Jesus' death.
3  O Saviour, from Thy pierced hand Shed o'er them all Thy gifts divine; That those who in Thy presence stand May do Thy will with love like Thine.
4  Blest Spirit, in their hearts abide,
And give them grace to watch and pray! That, as they seek Thy flock to guide! Themselves may keep the narrow way.
5  O God, Thy strength and mercy send
To shield them in their strife with sin I
Grant them, enduring to the end,
The crown of life at last to win.
{lev. Thomas E. Poweix, 186*
