Zeal for Souls. -- John 4:35.
Oh! still in accents sweet and strong
Sounds forth the ancient word, --
|More reapers for white harvest fields,
More laborers for the Lord!|
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.
3 Where prophet's word, and martyr's blood,
And prayers of saints were sown,
We, to their labors entering in,
Would reap where they have strown.
