George Whitefield Tricentennial – 1714-1770

“All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you.”

Come, let us adore the Lord’s gracious hand,

Our Great Governor, who gave a command

And charge to His angels to watch round our bed,

To guard us from evils, from dangers and dread.

The Shepherd alone the Lord let us bless,

Who reigns on the throne – the Prince of our peace;

Who ever more saves us by shedding His blood;

All hail, holy Jesus, our Lord and our God!

We daily will sing Thy merits, Thy praise,

Thou merciful spring of pity and grace:

Thy kindness forever to men we will tell;

And say, ‘our dear Savior redeems us from hell.’

Preserve us in love while here we abide;

Nor ever remove, nor cover, nor hide,

Thy glorious Salvation; till joyful we see

The beautiful vision completed in thee.
