MISSIONS, AND SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL.
JESUS receive journeys run;
ESUS shall reign where'er the sun
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
2 People and realms of ev'ry tongue
3 Blessings abound where'er He reigns:
And all the sons of want are blest.
4 Where He displays His healing power,
Let it echo o'er the sea:
2 All ye nations, join and sing,
Christ, of lords and kings, is King!
3 Now the desert lands rejoice, And the islands join their voice; Joy! the whole creation sings, "Jesus is the King of kings!" 215 (530).
ARK! the song of jubilee,
Or the fulness of the sea
When it breaks upon the shore:
God Omnipotent shall reign;
Echo round the earth and main!
2 Hallelujah! hark! the sound,
Sheathed His sword; He speaks - 't is done; And the kingdoms of this world
Are the kingdoms of His Son.
3 He shall reign from pole to pole
He shall reign when, like a scroll,
Man's last enemy shall fall;
God in Christ is all in all.
LORD, send Thy word, and let it fly,
Arm'd with Thy Spirit's power;
Ten thousand shall confess its sway,
2 Beneath the influence of Thy grace,
With verdure and with fruits array'd,
3 True holiness shall strike its root
4 Peace, with her olives crown'd, shall stretch Her wings from shore to shore;
No trump shall rouse the rage of war,
5 Lord, for those days we wait- those days
Fly swifter, sun and stars, and bring
What its signs of promise are.
2 Watchman! tell us of the night:
Peace and truth its course portends.
See! it bursts o'er all the earth!
3 Watchman! tell us of the night,
LORD our God! arise;
The cause of truth maintain;
2 Thou Prince of life! arise,
Far spread the conquests of Thy grace,
3 O Holy Spirit! rise,
Expand Thy heavenly wing,
And o'er a dark and ruin'd world
Let light and order spring.
4 Oh, all ye nations! rise,
To God the Saviour sing;
From shore to shore, from earth to heaven,
Constrain the earth to come;
the nations, O our God!
Send Thy victorious word abroad,
2 We long to see Thy churches full, That all Thy faithful race
May, with one voice and heart and soul,
ASTEN, Lord, the glorious time,
Ev'ry nation, ev'ry clime,
Shall the gospel call obey.
2 Mightiest kings His power shall own,
Bound in chains, shall hurt no more.
4 Bless we, then, our gracious Lord,
All His wondrous love proclaim.

ROM Greenland's icy mountains,
Where Afric's sunny fountains
Their land from error's chain.
