Macedonian Prayer

A prayer was launched to heaven

By someone long ago

The answer came eternal

And set the land aglow

Come over here and help us

To do the work of God

To lift the fallen standard

And bring a shepherd’s rod

For the sheep are widely scattered

And wandered from the fold

Saints are badly battered

In a land so dark and Cold

Help us preach the message

And tell salvation’s plan

And tell the blessed Gospel

To each and every man

Lord do send a saint or angel

To help us bear the load

To work along beside us

As we walk the narrow road

Paul and Silas were your answer

To this Macedonian call

Two servants of the Master

Who came and gave their all

I write this prayer and burden

For everyone to see

For me and you and others

For all posterity
