Commission to the Gentiles.
U To nations plunged in shades of night;
Like angels sent from fields above, my Be thine to shed celestial light.

And lead the thirsty, panting heart,
Where streams of living waters glide. 3 Go, bid the bright and morning star,
From Bethlehem's plains, resplendent shine, And, piercing through the glooin afar,
Shed heavenly light and love divine. 4 To India's various castes, proclaim
The gospel's soft, but powerful voice;
And, at the blest Redeemer's name,
Messiah yet shall reign supreme;
His praise-the universal theme.
