Tune: Charity

('Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost')

Colossians 4 v.2-6


Continue in prayer, and be

Vigilant and watchful, see

Give thanks, and be praying for

Spread of gospel more


Pray that doors for utterance

May be open, and so hence

The gospel of Christ be shared

With none it compared


That it be known and be told

Spoken confident and bold

And live wisely to those who

Know not gospel true


Redeem the time, waste it not

Prosperous do make your lot

Let speech be with grace always

In salvation's days


Let it be with salt seasoned

What is shared, proclaimed, reasoned

That you may know how to deal

For each one's true weal* (*well-being)
