4. Hallelujah! for the Lord
God omnipotent shall reign;
Echo round the earth and main. 5. Hallelujah! hark! the sound,
From the center to the skies,
All creation's harmonies.
1. SEE the ransomed millions stand
Palms of conquest in their hands!
“Hell is vanquished-death is slain!
Are the Conqueror's native right;
Lamb of God, and Lord of all!"
Come in glory and in power;
Nature sighs to be renewed.
All things, with the bride, say, “Come!"
1. Go, ye messengers of God,
Like the beams of morning fly;
Wave the banner-cross on high.
Gleams along the morning skies,
And the “ Star of Jacob” rise.
3. Go to many a tropic isle,
In the bosom of the deep,
And th' oppressed forever weep.
4. O'er the negro's night of care
Pour the living light of heaven;
Bid him hope to be forgiven.
Open on the palmy East,
Spread the Gospel's richest feast.
Visit every soil and sea ;
Christ, whose love is full and free.
1. LORD! Thou didst arise and say,
To the troubled waters, “ Peace !"
Down they sank, the foaming seas;
2. Lord! Thy gracious word repeat
To the billows of the proud;
Quell the fierce and changing crowd;
1. Sons of men, behold from far,
Hail the long-expected star!
And guides bewildered men aright.
Piercing through the shades of death;
Kindling darkness into light.
Haste to see your Lord appear;
Meet Him manifested there!
Pouring light on mortal eyes ;
1. Hail to the brightness of Zion's glad morning!
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;
Gentiles and Jews the blest vision behold. 3. Lo! in the desert rich flowers are springing,
Streams ever copious are gliding along;
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,
His beauteous face
In heaven ye view.
In human flesh arrayed,
And peace on earth,
For such a birth,
Beheld the tempter spoiled,
The Victor's head,
When Satan fled
Before His frow
A willing watch ye keep,
And all adored,
Your rising Lord,
With joy unknown.
The shining Conqueror rode,
Up to the throne of God;
And waved around
Your golden wings,
And struck your strings
Of sweetest sound.
And louder anthems raise,
With equal flame,
And joy the same,
Doxology. H. M.
Your highest honors raise ;
To God the Spirit praise;
8s & %s.
In a grand and awful time,
To be living is sublime.
Gog and Magog to the fray.
Groaning for its latter day?
God's own arm hath need of thine.
Worlds are charging to the shock.
