1  Once again, dear Lord, we pray
For the children far away,
Who have never even heard
Name of Jesus, sweetest word.

2  Little lips that thou hast made,
'Neath the far off temple's shade
Give to gods of wood and stone
Praise that should be all thine own.

3  Little hands, whose wondrous skill
Thou has given to do thy will,
Offerings bring, and serve with fear
Gods that cannot see or hear.

4  Teach them, O thou heavenly King,
All their gifts and praise to bring
To thy Son, who died to prove
Thy forgiving, saving love.
