    Verse 1
    Reverence is due Thy annointed,
    Messenger of Thy holy word;
    His position must honoured be,
    Give him the praise and honour him

    Verse 2
    His position is delicate,
    His garment must not be spotted,
    Let us support him with our love
    And humbly listen to his words

    Verse 3
    Since it has pleased Thee to make him
    A watchman to watch o'er our souls,
    Grant him patience to lead us still,
    Abundance of perseverance

    Verse 4
    By our actions, not to grieve
    Nor his patience us to exhaust;
    As his days, so shall his strength be
    Give him grace meet for his office

    Verse 5
    Let us Thy beauty in him see,
    Let him grow in humility,
    His place as shepherd, let him keep
    And know our own place as his sheep
