KELLY. 1 ME
TEN of God, go take your stations;
Bear the tidings
As the 'pow'r of God to save,'
3 When expos’d to fearful dangers,
Jesus will his own defend:
And his presence,
The same. WASHBOURN. FLY ye heralds of salvation,
Spread the gospel far abroad; 0, that each benighted nation
Migbt bebold the Lamb of God! We the light of truth possessing,
Conscious of its boundless worth, Would convey the heavn’ly blessing
Through the kingdoms of the earth. Lord, we pray thee to awaken
Missionary zeal around; Where thy work is undertaken,
Let it with success be crown'd; While they launch the gospel vessel,
With thy standard wide anfurld, For tbine influence we wrestle,
To convey it round the world.
Let it visit ev'ry shore;
And their rightful Lord adore.
Fill thy universal throne,
Make a ransom'd world thine own.
i LORD, smile on each divine attemp
To spread the gospel's rays; And build, on sin's demolish'd throne,
The temple of thy grace. 2 Oh! charge the waves to bear our friends
In safety o'er the deep: Let the rough tempest speed their way
Or bid its fury sleep. 3 Whene'er they preach the Saviour's word
Beneath the Banian's shade,
And grace his soul pervade.
Bid the new caste arise :
And India taste its joys.
ET party names no more
The Christian world o’erspread: Gentile and Jew, and bond and free,
Are one in Christ their Head.
Let mutual love be found;
Resemble that above;
And ev'ry heart is love. 161 C. M. The Unity of the Church.
With those to glory gone;
In hear'n and earth, are one.
2 One family, we dwell in Him:
One church, above, beneath, Though now divided by the stream
The narrow stream of death.
3 One army of the living God,
To his command we bow: Part of the host have cross'd the flood
And part are crossing now. 4 Ten thous to their endless home,
This solemn moment fly;
And soon expect to die!
Then, when the word is giv'n, Bid Jordan's narrow stream divide,
And land us safe in heav'n.
L. M. On Receiving Members.
1 COME in, thou blessed of the Lord,
Enter in Jesu's precious name; We welcome thee with one accord, And trust the Saviour does the same.
