And earth, with all her millions, shout f
Hosannas to the Lord.
HYMN 551, 78 and 6s. 551
The State of the Heathen.
Roll down their golden sand;
From many a palmy plain,
Their land from error's chain. 2 What though the spicy breezes тр Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle,
Though every prospect pleases,
And only man is vile?
The gifts of God are strown;
Bows down to wood and stone.
With wisdom from on high,-
The lamp of life deny? fon Salvation ! O Salvation !
The joyful sound proclaiın,
Has learned Messiah's name.
And yon, yo waters! roll,-
It spreads from pole to pole;
The Lamb for sinners slain,
In bliss returns to reign.
HYMN 552, L. M. 552
Zion encouraged. f 1
Put on thy robes of beauteous hue ;
2 Church of our God! arise and shine,
Bright with the beams of truth divine:
Wide as the heathen nations are.
All shall admire and love thee too ;-
HYMN 553, C. M. 553
Prayer for Missionaries.
u Are by creation thine;
And in thy works, from nature's birth,
Thy gospel to our race;
Of rich redeeming grace.
The spacious earth around,
Shall hear the joyful sound.
Shall Afric learn thy word,
The freemen of the Lord. > 5 When shall the scattered wanderers meet, mp
That now in darkness rove,
Sing of his saving love?
To spread the gospel rays;
The temples of thy praise.
HYMN 554, H. M. 554
Prophecy fulfilled. mf 1 ALL bail! incarnate God!
The wondrous things foretold
With joy our eyes behold;
Still doth thine arm new trophies wear,
And monuments of glory rear. f" 2 Oh! haste, victorious Prince!
That glorious happy day,
Shall own thy gentle sway:
And bear our shouts beyond the skies. f" 3 All hail! triumphant Lord !
Eternal be thy reign;
To wear thy gentle chain :
HYMN 555, L. M. 555
Triumph of the Gospel. f" 1
ARM of the Lord! awake, awake!
Put on thy strength, the nations shake,
Triumphs of mercy wrought by thee.
"I am Jehovah God alone!"
And cast their altars to the ground. mp3 Almighty God! thy grace proclaim,
In every land of every name;.
Oh! bring the tribes of Israel home.
Put on thy strength, the nations shake;
HYMN 556, 88, 7s and 4. 556
The Day Spring. mf 1
Breaks along the heathen sky;
Glorious day-spring from on high:
Hail the day-spring from on high !
inf 2 Heathen at the sight are singing ;
Morning wakes the tunetul lays;
First-fruits of more perfect praise:
llail the day-spring from on high !
Gilding now the radiant hills, -
All the world thy glory fills:
Ilail the day-spring from on high!
Spread thy truth from pole to pole;
Till it shine on every soul :
Hail the day-spring from on high!
HYMN 557, L. M.
Christ's Coming to reign.
For thine expected coming waits :
When will the promised light arise, mf And glory beam on Zion's gates ?
2 E'en now, when tempests round us fall, mp And wintry clouds o'ercast the sky,
Thy words with pleasure we recall,
Ånd deem that our redemption 's nigh. 3 Oh! come and reign o'er every land; mf Let Satan from his throne be hurled,
All nations bow to thy command,
And grace revive a dying world.
To wait for thine appointed hour;
The triumphs of thy conquering power.
HYMN 658, L. M. 558
The coming Reign of Christ. Ý A 1 !
SCEND thy throne, almighty King!
Let thine own arm salvation bring,
And be thou known the gracious God. 2 Let millions bow before thy seat, тр Let liumble mourners seek thy face;
Bring daring rebels to thy feet,
Subdued by thy victorious grace. mf 3 Oh! let the kingdoms of the world
Become the kingdoms of the Lord;
Be thou through heaven and earth adored.
HYMN 559, 78 and 6s. 559
The final Victory of Christ.
Flow joyfully along ?
With one triumphant song,
And him, who once was slain,
In righteousness to reign.
The sacred shout shall fly;
Shall echo the reply:
Shall send the chorus round,
In one eternal sound.
The New Creation.
HYMN 560, C. M.
A world by sin destroyed :
Move on the formless void.
Shall quell the deadly strife;
And earth again, like Eden crowned, mf Produce the tree of life. 3 If sang the morning stars for joy,
When naturé rose to view,
