to John W. Hatton's 18th Century tune called
Hail faithful pastor a guide to your flock;
On call you are from morn until night.
May God empower the great comfort you can bring,
And give you strength to share His Light.
Each Sunday morning you lead praise and pray'r,
And preach the Word to those who'll hear.
May God support you in the great truths you've to tell
Of Christian ways that they should steer.
Love, caring, list'ning are watchwords worthwhile;
By your example you'll show all.
May Christ's good grace o'erflowing from your heart
Spread His Good News and never stall.
