Saints' Days

(Index of Tunes, XC.)


Tune.--".Ye servants of the Lord, who stand"

Sheet Music

Mein Jesu, wie so gross die Lieb'


True Shepherd, who in love most deep

Did watch and suffer for Thy sheep,

And didst appoint Thy saints of old

To Teach and rule and serve Thy fold;

We thank Thee for that gracious care,

And pray that now and everywhere

Thy servants call'd to preach Thy Word

Be faithful shepherds, like their Lord.

Yea, all who own Thee for their Head,

Oh let them in Thy footsteps tread,

Owning and loving more Thy cross

Through persecution, shame, or loss.

No better trophy hath this day

Than hearts new-kindled to obey

The call, for Thee that bids them live,

And gladly yield all earth can give.

Nor for ourselves we pray alone,

In Thee Thy Church is ever one.

Unite us here in faith and love

Until we worship Thee above.
