God knows best whom to send, and we ought to be on the watch to profit by them all.
Tis not a cause of small import
The pastor’s care demands;
But what might fill an angel’s heart,
And fill’d a Saviour’s hands.
They watch for souls for which the Lord
Did heavenly bliss forego;
For souls which must for ever live
In raptures, or in woe.
May they that Jesus, whom they preach,
Their own Redeemer see:
And watch thou daily o’er their souls,
That they may watch for thee.
