|Tune:||DEUS TUORUM MILITUM|
1 Let the round world with songs rejoice,
Let heaven return the joyful voice,
All mindful of the Apostles’ fame,
Let heaven and earth their praise proclaim.
2 Ye servants who once bore the light
Of gospel truth o’er heathen night,
Still may your work that light impart,
To glad our eyes and cheer our heart.
3 O God, by whom to them was given
The key that shuts and opens heaven,
Our chains unbind, our loss repair,
And grant us grace to enter there.
4 For at thy will they preached the word
Which cured disease, which health conferred;
O may thy healing power once more
Our souls to grace and health restore.
5 That when as judge thy Son shall come
To bring his ransomed people home,
He may with them pronounce us blest,
And place us in thine endless rest.
6 To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be honour, praise and majesty,
Now and throughout eternity. Amen.
