5 So, when their work is finished here,

They may in hope their charge resign;
So, when their Master shall appear,
They may with crowns of glory shine. Amen.

2 Anoint them prophets! Make their ears attent

To Thy divinest speech; their hearts awake
To human need; their lips make eloquent

To assure the right, and every evil break.
3 Anoint them priests! Strong intercessors they

For pardon, and for charity and peace!
Ah, if with them the world might pass, astray,

Into the dear Christ's life of sacrifice!
4 Anoint them kings! aye kingly kings, O Lord!.

Anoint them with the spirit of Thy Son:
Theirs, not a jewelled crown, a blood-stained sword;

Theirs, by sweet love, for Christ a kingdom won.
5 Make them apostles! Heralds of Thy Cross,

Forth may they go to tell all realms Thy grace;
Inspired of Thee, may they count all but loss,

And stand at last with joy before Thy face.
6 O mighty age of prophet-kings, return!

O truth, O faith enrich our urgent time!
Lord Jesus Christ, again with us sojourn;
A weary world awaits Thy reign sublime! Amen.

2 All that dedicated city,

Dearly loved of God on high,
In exultant jubilation

Pours perpetual melody;
God the One in Three adoring

In glad hymns eternally.

3 To this temple, where we call Thee,

Come, O Lord of Hosts, to-day:
With Thy wonted loving-kindness,

Hear Thy servants as they pray;
And Thy fullest benediction

Shed within its walls alway.

4 Here vouchsafe to all Thy servants

What they ask of Thee to gain,
What they gain from Thee, for ever

With the blessed to retain,
And hereafter in Thy glory
Evermore with Thee to reign. Amen.

3 Yet everywhere Thou guid'st Thine own 6 Here to the weary, hungry soul,

To raise for Thee an earthly throne; Give Thou the gift that maketh whole; And where Thy Name Thou dost record, The bread that is Christ's flesh, for food, There Thou wilt come and bless them. The wine that is the Saviour's blood. Lord!

7 Lord, we are few, but Thou art near; 4 Great Shepherd of Thy chosen few, Nor short Thine arm, nor deaf Thine Thy former mercies here renew;

ear; And here to wayward hearts proclaim Oh, rend the heavens, come quickly down, The sweetness of Thy saving Name! And make a thousand hearts Thine own!

Amen.
