B. Tours, 1872
2 Like Him, through scenes of deep distress, Who bore the world's sad weight, "We, in their crowded loneliness, Would seek the desolate.
And that Thy followers may be tried, The poor are with us still.
4 Mean are all offerings we can make; But Thou hast taught us, Lord,
3 For Thou hast placed us side by side In this wide world of ill;
If given for the Saviour's sake, They lose not their reward.
Rev. William Crosswell, 1831
Rev. J. B. Dvkks, 1866
2  We hear the call; in dreams no more
In selfish ease we lie, But girded for our Father's work,
Go forth beneath His sky.                     4
3  Where prophets' word, and martyrs' blood,
And prayers of saints were sown,
We, to their labors entering in,
Would reap where they have strown.
O Thou whose call our hearts has stirred!
To do Thy will we come; Thrust in our sickles at Thy word,
And bear our harvest home.
Rev. Samuel Longfellow, 1864
