8s, 7s and 4.
The Missionary's Farewell.
All thy scenes I love them well;
Can I leave you.
Far in heathen lands to dwell?
Joys no stranger-heart can tell;
Can I leave thee,
Holy days and Sabbath-bell,
From the scenes I love so well;
Pleased I leave thee,
Far in heathen lands to dwell.
On the mountains let me tell,
Let me hasten,
Far in heathen lands to dwell. 6 Bear me on, thou restless ocean!
Let the winds my canvass swell :
Glad I bid thee,
L. M. 540.
Missionaries remembered. 1 MARKED as the purpose of the skies,
This promise nieets our anxious eyes,
That heathen lands the Lord shall know,
And warm with faith each bosum glow. 2 E'en now the hallowed scenes appear;
E'en now unfolds the promised year:
And bear the tidings of thy grace.
Where pagan darkness brooding reigns,
And nerve their arm, and clear their view. 4 When, worn by tvil, their spirits fail,
Bid them the glorivus future hail;
SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL.
1. M. 541.
Prayer for the Millennium.
We list our eyes to seek thy face;
On contrite svuis bestow thy grace. 2 See, spread beneath thy gracious eye,
A world o’erwhelmed in guilt and tears, Where deathless souls in ruin lie,
And no kind voice dispels their fears ! 3 Lord! arm thy Truth with power divine,
Its conquests spread froin shore to shore, Till suns and stars forget to shine,
And carth and skies shall be no more. 4 Oh! rise, ye ransomed captives ! rise,
Peal the loud anthein here below;
C. M. 542.
Returning to Zion. 1 DAUGHTER of Zion! from the dust
Exalt thy fallen head ;
Again in thy Redeemer trust,
He calls ihee from the dead.
Thy heautiful array;
The Lord's appointed day.
And send thy heralds forth:
And keep not back, 0 north !" 4 They come, they come ;-thine exiled bands,
Where'er they rest or roam,
And hasten to their home.
And God his works destroy,
And everlasting joy. 543.
The gospel-trumpet sounds;
Or heal your heart-felt wounds. 2 ’T is not the trump of war,
Nor Sinai's awful roar;
And vengeance is no more. 3 Forgiveness, love, and peace,
Glad heaven aloud proclaims;
With eager rapture claims. 4 Far, far to distant lands
The saving news shall spread;
S. M. 544.
Prayer for Success. 1 O LORD, our God! arise,
The cause of truth maintain;
And wide o'er all the peopled world
Extend her blessed reign. 2 Thou Prince of life! arise,
Nor let thy glory cease;
And bless the earth with peace. 3 Thou Holy Ghost! arise,
Expand'thy quickening wing,
Let light and order spring. 4 All on the earth! arise,
To God, the Saviour, sing,
L.. M. 545.
The Time to farur Zion. 1 SOVEREIGN of worlds! display thy power,
Be this thy Zion's favored hour;
And point the nations to the skies.
On Afric's shore, on India's plains;
And claim the nations for thy own. 3 Speak—and the world shall hear thy voice;
Speak,--and the desert shall rejoice;
Bid every nation hail the light. 546.
Armed with thy Spirit's power ;
And bless the saving hour.
The barren wastes shall rise,
A blooming paradise.
Her wings from shore to shore ;
The nations of the earth shall hear
The sound of war no more. 4 Lord ! for those days we wait;—those days
Are in thy word foretold :
This promised age of gold.
Unnumbered inyriads cry:
S. M. 547.
Prayer for all Lands. 1 O GOD of sovereign grace!
We bow before thy throne;
The merits of thy Son.
The knowledge of thy ways;
The great Redeemer's praise. 548.
Jesus shall reign.
Loud as mighty thunders roar,-
Echo round the earth and main.
From the centre to the skies,
Are the kingdoms of' bis Son.
With illimitable sway :
