THE CALL FOR WORKERS
(Sung to the music of “Far and Near the Fields Are Teeming” The Church Hymnal, No. 448)

Far and near the signs are telling
Of the great and dreadful day;
Far and near men’s hearts are failing
For some light to guide the way.

Chorus: Lord of mercy, send forth Thy ROD,
Revealed from Thy sacred page.
Send forth teachers, Thy Church to warn
In this sin-cursed, darkened age.

Send them forth, the men of knowledge,
Send them with Thy bound-up ROD;
Send them now to save Thy lost sheep,
Let them teach the Truth of God.

Chorus: Lord of mercy, send forth Thy ROD,
Revealed from Thy sacred page.
Send forth teachers, Thy Church to warn
In this sin-cursed, darkened age.

Though the Mighty Angel’s message
Has been sounding all these years,
Yet it finds God’s Church fast sleeping:
To the ROD they close their ears.

Chorus: Lord of mercy, send forth Thy ROD,
Revealed from Thy sacred page.
Send forth teachers, Thy Church to warn
In this sin-cursed, darkened age.
