English Hymn 67
Wake up, O Spirit of our fathers:
Your power was mighty
in the church’s youth!
Re- turn to this our generation,
And help us wit- ness
to your saving truth.
Our fathers’ voices echo round us still:
Great Spirit may we al- so do your will!
Lord, may your gospel fire be kindled
And spread among your church in every land.
Let all whose faith and hope have dwindled
Become a flaming torch within your hand.
Send workers out to bring the harvest in:
The fields are ripe, but few are gathering.
You will fulfil your
You are the judge and saviour of the world;
You know our troubles and our darkness
And you can change them into light untold.
In faith and trust we bring our prayer to you,
We’ll never ask as much as you can do.
