2 Strong were thy foes; but the arm that subdued
them, And scattered their legions, was mightier far; They fled, like the chaff, from the scourge that
pursued them; Vain were their steeds and their chariots of war. 3 Daughter of Zion! the power, that hath saved thee,
Extolled with the harp and the timbrel should Shout,-for the foe is destroyed that enslaved thee, Th’ oppressor is vanquished, and Zion is free.
The universal song:
The joyful notes prolong. ? Let Kedar's wilderness afar
Lift up the lonely voice ;
In accent rude rejoice.
To our Jehovah sing ;
Shout to the Lord, the king.
The Saviour's glories raise,
The nations sound his praise. 570.
Es, 7s and 4.
Davoning of the Latter. Day.
Joyful times are near at hand;
By his word in every land;
Darkness flies, at his command.
While he enters like a flood,
Means to spread his truth abroad:
Soon shall tell the love of God.
3 God of Jacob, high and glorious!
Let thy people see thy power;
Through the world for evermore;
Perish, while thy saints adore. 571.
Success unticipated. 1 BEHOLD th' expected time draw near,
The shades disperse, the dawn appear!
The beauteous tiits of Eden's bloom! 2 Events with prophecies conspire
To raise our faith, our zeal to fire:
Present a harvest to the sight. 3 The untaught heathen waits to know
The joy the gospel will bestow;
The freedom Jesus has to give.
In the blest labor share a part ;
To aid the triumphs of our King. 572.
The Victories of Christ. 1 HOSANNA to our conquering King !
All hail! incarnate love!
To crown thy hcad above. 2 Thy victries and thy deathless fame,
Through the wide world, shall run; And everlasting ages sing
The triumph thou hast won. 573.
The generul Jubilee.
The silver trumpets sound,
While dawns the day around:
2 Pris'ners of hope, in gloom
And silence, left to die !
Your portals open fly:
It is the year of jubilee.
For debts to justice due,
He gave himself for you:
It is the year of jubilee.
O’er earth and ocean, hear
The Lord's accepted year:
It is the year of jubilee. 574.
The Reign of Christ established.
Through distant lands his triumphs spread;
Own him their Saviour and their head. 2 Oh! may his conquests still increase;
Let every foe his power subdue;
Saints shall his rising glories show. 3 Loud hallelujahs to the Lamb,
From all below and all above;
In songs as lasting as his love. 575.
The Reign of Christ. 1 WAKE the song of jubilee,
Let it echo o'er the sea !
Jesus reigns with sovereign power.
“ Christ, of lords and kings, is King !"
3 Now the desert lands rejoice,
And the islands join their voice;
“ Jesus is the King of kings !" 576.
The triumphant Reign of Christ
Palms of conquest in their hands!
“Hell is vanquished-death is slain! 2 “ Blessing, honor, glory, might,
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!"
Let my prayer ascend on high ;
Hear me, when to thee I cry:
For the sake of Christ, thy Son.
While the shades of night depart;
Joy and gladness to my heart :
3 Oh! what joy that word affords,-
* Thou shalt reign o'er ail the earth ;" King of kings, and Lord of lords !
Send thy gospel-heralds forth :
Usher in the glorious day. 578.
Prayer for spiritual Light.
Thou Day-Star from on high !
Yet, cheers both earth and sky, 2 Oh! let thy rising beams
Dispel the shades of night;
Come, like the morning-light.
How dark and sad before!-
And nature's God adore.
To mourn for errors past;
As if it were our last. 579.
Kindly aid my morning-song;
To the God that rules the skies.
Thy preserving hand was nigh;
Grateful to my weary head.
'T was thy hand restored the light;
Plenteous, as the morning-dew.
Oh! preserve me through the day;
