Matthew 28:19–20 (Listen)
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in1 the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Hymn: TLH 510, st. 2,3: Savior, Sprinkle Many Nations
2. Let to mortals all be given
Thee to know and life to gain,
Thee, the very God of heaven,
Thee, the Man for sinners slain.
Speak Thou hope to ev’ry mortal
Thro’ the Gospel, sweet and blest;
Lead them thro’ Thy kingdom’s portal
To eternal peace and rest.
3. Great the need in ev’ry nation,
Dense the darkness of sin’s night;
Let Thy Spirit bring salvation,
Love’s pure flame, and wisdom’s light.
Give the Word, Thy preachers strengthen
With the prophets’ pow’r of old,
Help them Zion’s cords to lengthen,
All Thy wand’ring sheep to fold.
