God omnipotent shall reign;
Hallelujah! let the word

Echo round the earth and main. 5. Hallelujah! hark! the sound,

From the center to the skies,
Wakes, above, beneath, around,

All creation's harmonies.

1. SEE the ransomed millions stand

Palms of conquest in their hands!
This before the throne their strain

“Hell is vanquished-death is slain!

Are the Conqueror's native right;
Thrones and powers before Him fall-

Lamb of God, and Lord of all!"

Come in glory and in power;
Still Thy foes are unsubdued-

Nature sighs to be renewed.
4. Time has nearly reached its sum;

All things, with the bride, say, “Come!"
Jesus! whom all worlds adore,
Come—and reign for evermore.

Like the beams of morning fly;
Take the wonder-working rod,

Wave the banner-cross on high.
2. Where the lofty minaret

Gleams along the morning skies,
Wave it till the crescent set,

And the “ Star of Jacob” rise.

In the bosom of the deep,
Where the skies forever smile,

And th' oppressed forever weep.

Pour the living light of heaven;
Chase away the fiend despair,

Bid him hope to be forgiven.

Open on the palmy East,
Wide the bleeding cross display,

Spread the Gospel's richest feast.

Visit every soil and sea ;
Preach the cross of Christ to all-

Christ, whose love is full and free.

1. LORD! Thou didst arise and say,

To the troubled waters, “ Peace !"
And the tempest died away,

Down they sank, the foaming seas;
And a calm and heaving sleep
Spread o'er all the glassy deep;
All the azure lake serenc
Like another heaven was seen!

2. Lord! Thy gracious word repeat

To the billows of the proud;
Quell the tyrant's martial heat;

Quell the fierce and changing crowd;
Then the earth shall find repose
From oppressions and from woes;
And an imaged heaven appear
On our world of darkness here.

Hail the long-expected star!

Piercing through the shades of death;
Scattering error's wide-spread night;

Kindling darkness into light.

Haste to see your Lord appear;
Haste, for Him your hearts prepare,

Meet Him manifested there!
4. There behold the day-spring rise,

Pouring light on mortal eyes ;
See it chase the shades away,
Shining to the perfect day.

Joy to the lands that in darkness have lain; Hushed be the accents of sorrow and mourning,

Zion in triumph begins her mild reign. 2. IIail to the brightness of Zion's glad morning,

Long by the prophets of Israel foretold;
Hail to the millions from bondago returning,

Gentiles and Jews the blest vision behold. 3. Lo! in the desert rich flowers are springing,

Streams ever copious are gliding along;
Loud from the mountain-tops echoes are ringing,

Wastes rise in verdure and mingle in song. 4. See, from all lands—from the isles of the ocean,

Praise to Jehovah ascending on high; Fallen are the engines of war and commotion,

Shouts of salvation are rending the sky.

1. O YE immortal throng

Of angels round the throne,
Join with our feeble song,
To make the Saviour known!
On earth


His wondrous grace;

His beauteous face

In heaven ye view.
2. Ye saw the heaven-born Child

In human flesh arrayed,
Benevolent and mild,
While in the manger laid;
And praise to God,

And peace on earth,

For such a birth,

Proclaimed aloud.
3. Ye in the wilderness

Beheld the tempter spoiled,
Well known in every dress,
In every combat foiled;
And joined to crown

The Victor's head,

When Satan fled

Before His frow
4. Around His sacred tomb

A willing watch ye keep,
Till the blest moment come
To rouse Him from His sleep;
Then rolled the stone,

And all adored,

Your rising Lord,

With joy unknown.
5. When, all arrayed in light,

The shining Conqueror rode,
Ye hailed His rapturous flight

Up to the throne of God;


And waved around

Your golden wings,

And struck your strings

Of sweetest sound.
6. The warbling notes pursue,

And louder anthems raise,
While mortals sing with you
Their own Redeemer's praise ;
And thou, my heart,

With equal flame,

And joy the same,
Perform thy part.


Doxology. H. M.
To God the Father's throne

Your highest honors raise ;
Glory to God the Son ;

To God the Spirit praise;
With all our powers, eternal King,
Thy name we sing, while faith adores.

1. We are living, we are dwelling,

In a grand and awful time,
In an age on ages telling,

To be living is sublime.
Hark! the waking up of nations,

Gog and Magog to the fray.
Hark! what soundeth ? is creation

Groaning for its latter day?
2. Will ye play, then, will ye dally,
With your music and


wine ?
Up! it is Jehovah's rally!

God's own arm hath need of thine.
Hark! the onset! will


Faith-clad arms in lazy lock ?
Up, O up, thou drowsy soldier;

Worlds are charging to the shock.
