4 Fly abroad, thou mighty gospel,

Win and conquer, never cease;
May thy lasting wide dominion
Multiply and still increase!

Sway thy sceptre,
Saviour, all the world around!

THAT in joyful boundless strains

Th'extended world would raise,
One sacred shout of “Jesus reigns”

And fill her shores with praise. 2 Hark, the reverberating song

Already strikes the ear,
And the vast echoes, sweet and strong,

Shall soon surround the sphere. 3 From torrid climes to either pole,

Through each surrounding sky,
The thunders of bis praise shall roll,

And his dominion fly.
L. M.

Anon. I CAPTAIN of thine enlisted host,

Display thy glorious banner high ; The summons send from coast to coast, And call a num'rous army nigh.

The same.

2 A solemn jubilee proclaim,

Proclaim the great sabbatic day:
Assert the glories of thy name,
Spoil Satan of his wish'd for prey.

3 Bid, bid the heralds publish loud,

The peaceful blessings of thy reign : And when they speak of sprinkled blood, O let thy spirit make it plain.


L. M.

SPIRIT of the living God!

In all thy plenitude of grace,
Where'er the foot of man hath trod,
Descend on our apostate race.

2 Give tongues of fire and hearts of love

To preach the reconciling word;
Give pow'r and unction from above,
Where'er the joyful sound is heard.

3 Be darkness, at thy coming, light,

Confusion, order in thy path;
Souls without strength inspire with might,
Bid mercy triumph over wrath.

4 Baptize the nations; far and nigh

The triumphs of the cross record;
The name of Jesus glorify,

Till ev'ry kindred call Him, Lord. 148

L, M. The same. MONTGOMERY. 1 THOU spirit of the

Lord, go forth, Call in the south, wake up the north ; Of ev'ry clime, from sun to sun,

Gather God's children into one.
2 The heathen perish ;-day by day,

Thousands on thousands pass away!
O Christians! to their rescue fly,

Preach Jesus to them ere they die.
3 Wealth, labour, talents, freely give,

Yea, life itself, that they may live; What hath your Saviour done for you?

And wbat for Him will ye not do? 149 7. 6. 7. 6.

HEBER. 1 FROM Greenland's icy mountains,

From India's coral strand, Where Afric's sunny fountains

Roll down their golden sand;

The same.


From many an ancient rivor,

From many a palmy plain, They call us to deliver

Their land from error's chain. 2 Shall we, whose souls are lighted

With wisdom from on high,
Shall we to men benighted

The lamp of light deny?
Salvation! 0 Salvation!

The joyful sound proclaim,
'Till each remotest nation

Has learn'd Messiah's name. 3 Waft, waft, ye winds, bis story,

And you, ye waters, roll, "Till, like a sea of glory,

It spreads from pole to pole.;
'Till o'er our ransom'd nature

The Lamb for sinners slain;
Redeemer, King, Creator,

In bliss returns to reiga.
6. 8.

'Which soothes the heart in every woe, While heathens, helpless, hopeless lie, No ray of glory meets their eye:

O give to their desiring sight
The hope that Jesus brought to light!

2 Christians, ye taste the heav'nly grace,

Which cheers believers in their race: Uncheer'd by grace, through beathen

gloom, See millions hastening to the tomb: To heathen lands that grace convey, Which trains the soul for endless day.

3 Christians, ye prize the Saviour's blood,

In which the soul is cleans'd for God:
Millions of souls in darkness dwell,
Uncleans'd from sin expos’d to hell:
O strive that beathens soon may view
That precious blood, which cleanseth you.

[merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors]


BLOW ye the trumpet, blow

The gladly solemn sound,
Let all the nations know

To earth's remotest bound,
The year of Jubilee is conie;
Return ye ransom'd sinners, home.
