1. Thy servants are prepared
To teach thy word abroad,
To gather in thy sheep
To thee, O Lamb of God.
2. Let these, thy servants, speak
With heart and voice of youth,
And fill the world’s dark lamps
With light, the flame of truth.
3. In all of Zion’s stakes
Thy love shall conquer night,
While darkness draws away
From thy revealing light.
