    A Missionary’s Prayer (I Will Go and Do)

    1. Father, I hear thy call,
    I turn my thoughts to thee, forsaking all;
    Recalling promises we all must keep.
    I put my hand in thine and go to feed thy sheep.
    Lead me to those who seek,
    and give me faith and strength to boldly speak.
    In humble dignity I will proclaim,
    that men may come to know and love thy holy name.
    If there be trials, Lord, to help me grow,
    If thou wilt guide me I will conquer, this I know!
    I will go and do the things which the Lord commandeth,
    for I know that He giveth no commands to His children,
    except He prepare a way, except He prepare a way.
    2. Father, I clearly see that ev’ry lasting joy has come from thee.
    Help me to serve thee well and thus repay,
    Thy loving kindness I receive from day to day.
    Knowing that thou art near, and I may seek thy help through daily prayer.
    I’ll walk in confidence that I will see thy Spirit touch the lives of seeking men through me.
    If there be trials, Lord, to help me grow,
    If thou wilt guide me I will conquer, this I know!
    I will go and do the things which the Lord commandeth,
    for I know that He giveth no commands to His children,
    except He prepare a way, except He prepare a way.
