Give Your Servant Special Unction


Don Fortner


(Tune: Come, Thou Fount #17†† 87.87 D)


Father, now, direct Your servant

As he stands to preach Your Word.

Give him grace and make him fervent

As he speaks for You, our Lord.

Give to every child his portion.

Call the dead to life, O God.

Give Your servant special unction

To preach life through Jesusí blood.


Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

Manifest Your grace in us

May we each Your love inherit.

In us Satanís power crush.

Let us now behold the glory

Of our God in Jesusí face

As our pastor tells the story

Of redeeming love and grace.
