HYMN 346. L. M.
The gathering of the Gentiles.
And what for this will ye not do? 3 Thou spirit of the Lord go forth,
Call in the south, wake up the north;
HYMN 347. C. M. 1
SATAN, the world, and sin,
And tread the downward road. 2 0 Tholl who on the cross
Didst for my sins atone,
Do not a child disown.
I am, and still would be:
HYMN 348. S. M.
Rest from thy lov'd employ ;
Enter thy Master's joy.
He started up to hear;
He fell-but felt no fear 3 Tranquil amidst alarms,
It found him on the field,
A veteran slumb'ring on his arms,
Beneath his red cross shield. 4 His sword was in his hand,
Still warm with recent fight,
Through rock and steel to smite. 5 It was a two-edged blade
Of heavenly temper keen;
Where'er it glanced between. 6 'Twas death to sin-'twas life
To all who mourned for sir ;
Made war and peace within. 7 Oft with its fiery force
His arm hath quell'd the foc,
The alien-armies low.
8 Bent on such glorious toils,
The worid to him was loss,
He hung upon the cross. 9 At midnight came the cry,
“To meet thy God prepare!" He woke-and caught his Captain's eye.
Then, strong in faith and prayer o His spirit, with a bound,
Left its encumbering clay;
A darken'd ruin lay.
Labour and sorrow cease;
His soul is found in peace. 12 Soldier of Christ, well done
Praise be thy new employ; And while eternal ages run
Rest in thy Saviour's joy.
HYMN 349, C. M.
Ye people of his choice;
With heart, and soul, and voice. 2 Though high above all praise,
Above all blessing high,
And laud, and magnify? 3 O for the living flame,
From his own altar brought,
And wing to heaven our thought! 4 There, with benign regard,
Our hymns he deigns to hear,
The spirit feels him near.
And his salvation ours;
With all our ransom'd powers. 6 Stand up and bless the Lord,
The Lord your God adore;
Henceforth for evermore.
HYMN 350. P. M. The Song of the Hundred and forty end four
This innumerable throng,
Hymning one triumphant song-
Blessing, honour, glory, power,
New dominion every hour ?" % These througb fiery trials trod,
These fron great afflictions came;
Now, before the throne of God,
Sealed with his almighty name,
Victor palms in every hand,
Moru than conquerors they stand. 3 Hunger, thirst, disease unknown,
On immortal fruits they feed;
Shall to living fountains lead:
Perfect love dispels all fears,
God shall wipe away the lears.
HYMN 351. P. M.
Glory to God in the Highest. 1 ONGS of praise the angels sang,
When Jehovah's work begun,
When he spake, and it was done. 2 Songs of praise awoke the morn,
When the Prince of Peace was born
Captive led captivity.
Songs of praise shall crown that day : God will make new heavens and earth,
Songs of praise shall hail their birth. 4 And will man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious kingdom come ?
Psalms and hymns and songs of praise. 5 Saints below, with heart and voice,
Still in songs of praise rejoice;
Songs of praise to sing above. 6 Borne upon the latest breath,
Songs of praise shall conquer death;
HYMN 352. S. M. 10
SPIRIT of the living God!
In all thy plenitude of grace, Where'er the foot of man hath trod,
Descend on an apostate race. 2 Give tongues of fire and bearts of love
To preach the reconciling word; Give power and motion from above,
Where'er the joyful sound is heard. 3 Be darkness, at thy coming, light;
Confusion order in thy path;
Bid mercy triumph over wrath. 4 O spirit of the Lord! prepare
All the round earth her God to meet;
Till hearts of stone begin to beat. 5 Baptize the nations far and nigh,
The triumphs of the cross record;
Till every kindred call him Lord 6 God from eternity hath will'd,
All flesh shall his salvation see;
HYMN 353. C. M. D.
To joy celestial rise:
With those to glory gone:
In earth and heav'n are one. % One family, we dwell in him,
One church above, beneath,
The narrow stream of death:
To his command we bow;
