Expository Songs from II Thessalonians 3

II Thessalonians 3:1

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you

Carl Heinrich von Bogatzky’s missionary hymn “Awake, Thou Spirit, Who Didst Fire” reflects II Thessalonians 3:1 in its closing verse:

And let Thy Word have speedy course,
Thro’ every land be glorified,
Till all the heathen know its force
And fill Thy churches far and wide.
Oh, spread the conquest of Thy Word
And let Thy kingdom come, dear Lord!
