3 Here the little vine, increasing,

Spread its branches green and fair ; Now by Thine especial blessing

See how wide Thy vineyards are. Come and take the ripened cluster;

All the vintage, Lord, is Thine; But let mercy temper justice,

Where Thou meet'st a fruitless vine.

4 Let our institutions flourish,

Sending forth a pious band, With the words of life to nourish

All who hunger through the land. Zion spreads her hands before Thee;

Come, and in her temples reign, While we give all praise and glory

To the Triune God, Amen.

Look down up-on Thy saints be-low When prostrate laid be- neath the foe.

2 Beloved Shepherd, who hast saved

Our souls from death and sin,
Uplift Thy voice, awake Thy sheep,

That slumbering lie within
Thy fold; and curb, with Thy right hand,

The rage of Satan's furious band.

3 Send down Thy peace and banish strife,

Let bitterness depart;
Revive the spirit of Thy grace

In each true Christian's heart;
Then shall Thy church forever sing
The praises of her heavenly King.

CHRIST FOR THE WORLD WE SING.

REV. SAMUEL WOLCOTT, (1813–1886) 1869.
1 Christ for the world we sing;
The world to Christ we bring,

With loving zeal ;
The poor, and them that mourn,
The faint and overborne,
Sin-sick and sorrow-worn,

Whom Christ doth heal.

3 Christ for the world we sing;
The world to Christ we bring,

With one accord;
With us the work to share,
With us reproach to dare,
With us the cross to bear,

For Christ our Lord.

2 Christ for the world we sing;
The world to Christ we bring,

With fervent prayer;
The wayward and the lost,
By restless passions tossed,
Redeemed at countless cost,

From dark despair.

4 Christ for the world we sing ;
The world to Christ we bring,

With joyful song;
The new-born souls, whose days,
Reclaimed from error's ways,
Inspired with hope and praise,

To Christ belong.
