Hymn 292
13 13 13 13
1. Ye who are called to labor and minister for God,
Blest with the royal priesthood, and called by his word,
To preach among the nations, the news of gospel grace
And publish on the mountains, salvation, truth and grace.

2. O let not vain ambition or worldly glory stain
Your minds so pure and holy, but 'quit yourselves like men
While lifting up your voices, like trumpets long and loud,
Say to the slumbering nations, "Prepare to meet your God."

3. Then cease from all light speeches, light mindedness and pride,
Pray always without ceasing, and in the truth abide,
The Comforter will teach you, his richest blessings send,
Your Savior will be with you, always unto the end.

4. And while you roam as pilgrims, and strangers on this earth,
O do not be discouraged, with songs of joy go forth.
Rejoice in tribulation for your reward is sure,
Remember that your Savior like sorrows did endure.

5. Rich blessings do await you, and God will give you faith,
You shall be crowned with glory and triumph over death,
And soon you'll come to Zion, bearing your many sheaves,
No more to taste of sorrow, but glorious crowns receive.
