Luke 10:1–6 (Listen)

Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two

10:1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two1 others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’ And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you.

Hymn: TLH 488, st. 1,2,4: Lord of the Harvest, Hear Organ Audio

1. Lord of the harvest, hear 
Thy needy servants’ cry; 
Answer our faith’s effectual prayer 
And all our wants supply. 

2. On Thee we humbly wait, 
Our wants are in Thy view. 
The harvest, truly, Lord, is great, 
The laborers are few. 

4. Oh, let them spread Thy name, 
Their mission fully prove, 
Thy universal grace proclaim, 
Thine all-redeeming love!
