Verse 1
Lord Jesus Saviour of the world
Thy blessings we implore
An open door and effectual
For preaching of Thy word.

Verse 2
Bring back those who are lost in sin
Rescue them from their foe
Accept them back into the fold
On this Thy mercy day.

Verse 3
Lover of souls! Thou knowest the
Value of souls Thou bought;
The wounds on Thy body received:
Reveal Thyself to them.

Verse 4
Dear Lord, make soft their hearts of stone
Thou who didst die for man
Show us the earnest of Thy love
Thy hand, Thy feet, Thy side.

Verse 5
Thy feet were nailed to the cross tree
To step down on their sins
Thy hands were both outstretched to save
Those who crucified Thee.

Verse 6
Thy riven side, a fountain is
Where all men can partake
And drink of the living water
And wash their sins away.

Verse 7
Thy blood Thou gave as witness of
The truth of Thy pure word
Thy wounds proclaim to all sinners
I suffered this for you.
