And wonderful man-catchers they became, taking whole nations in their gospel nets. The Lord help all his spiritual fishermen to cast the net on the right side of the ship.
O Lord our God, thy servants bless,
And crown their labours with success;
For they will cast the net in vain
If thou the Spirit dost restrain.
But if thou guide their willing hand,
Obedient to thy wise command,
Then will they bring the sons of men
Back to their Lord and God again.
