To rule in every zone:
In every heart a throne. 3 Awake, awake, O Zion,
The bridal day draws nigh,
And marvels from on high :
But keep thou watch and ward;

1. The morning light is breaking: The darkness disappears; The sons of earth are waking To pen - i - tential tears :
Each breeze that sweeps the ocean Brings tidings from afar Of nations in commotion, Prepared for Zion's war.
1132 Success of the Gospel
Before the God we love,
In gratitude above;
The gospel call obey,
A nation in a day.
Pursue thine onward way; Flow thou to every nation,
Nor in thy riches stay:
Triumphant reach their home;

The coming Millennium. I AWAKE, awake, O Zion,
Put on thy strength divine, Thy garments bright in beauty,
The bridal dress be thine:
To purity restored;
Go forth to meet thy Lord.
Comes down to earth again; No Sufferer now,
but Victor, For evermore to reign;
1134 The good Tidings.
The feet of him that brings,
Good tidings of good things;
And jubilee release,
God's reign of joy and peace.
And shout from Zion's towers
“The victory is ours!”
In gl and renown,

1135 Prayer for a Revival of Religion.
Spread Thy rule from sea to sea;
Save us, save us, Lord, by grace.
Bring us to a pardoning God;
Hearts the gospel truth to obey;
Grace doth more than sin abound;
Peace on earth, and joy in heaven.
Perfectly subdued to Thee;
Everlasting life below.
Stretch throughout the happy land:
Rev. Charles Wesley. (1708–1788.) 1749. alt. 1136 Thanksgiving for a Revival of Religion. i Fount of everlasting love,
Rich Thy streams of mercy are;
Beauty marks their course afar.
Drinks the full, refreshing tide;
Floods of grace are sweeping wide.
3 God of mercy, to Thy throne
Now our fervent thanks we bring; Thine the glory, Thine alone,
Joyous praise to Thee we sing.
Let Thy Spirit still descend;
Rev. Ray Palmer. (1808–) 1832, 1865 1137
Led by Jacob's rising star?
There to seek a peaceful home.
Or as doves their windows crowd:
Zion feels a strange delight.
God will raise her glory high;
He will give His people peace.
See her sky without a cloud:
Zion's sun shall never set. ket. Thomas Kelly. (1769-1855.) 1806. ab. and all 1138

1140 Christ reigning over all the Earth.
Let it echo o'er the sca:
Jesus reigns with glorious power. 2 All ye nations, join and sing,
Praise your Saviour, praise your King; Let it sound from shore to shore,
“Jesus reigns for evermore !"
And the islands join their voice :
Rev. Leonard Bacon. (1802) 1833.

1141 “ The Song of Jubilee."
Loud as mighty thunders roar,
When it breaks upon the shore:
God Omnipotent shall reign;
Echo round the earth and main. 2 Hallelujah! hark, the sound,
From the centre to the skies,
All creation's harmonics.
Sheathed Hissword: Hespeaks; 'tis done,
Are the kingdoms of His Son. 3 He shall reign from pole to pole
With illimitable sway ;
Yonder heavens have passed away:
Man's last enemy shall fall :
God in Christ, is All in all.

1142 “ For those in Peril."
When in the tempting port they ride, 2 O Saviour, whose almighty word
O keep them safe at Jesus' side. The winds and waves submissive heard,
14 If life's wide ocean smile or roar, Who walkedst in the foaming deep,
Still guide them to the heavenly shore; And calm amid its rage didst sleep;
And grant their dust in Christ may sleep, O hear us when we cry to Thee
Abroad, at home, or in the deep. For those in peril on the sea.
Bp. George Burgess. (1809—1866.) 1840 3 O Sacred Spirit, who didst brood Upon the chaos dark and rude,
1144 Ps. cvii. 23-30. Who bad'st its angry tumult cease,
1 O GOD, Who metest in Thy Hand And gavest light, and life, and
The waters of the mighty sea, O hear us when we cry to Thee
And barrest ocean with the sand For those in peril on the sea.
By Thy perpetual decree; 4 O Trinity of love and power, Our brethren shield in danger's hour;
2 When they who to the sea go down, From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
And in the waters ply their toil, Protect them wheresoe'er they go;
Are listed on the surge's crown, And ever let there rise to Thee
And plunged where seething eddies boil; Glad hymns of praise from land and sea. 3 Rule then, O Lord, the ocean's wrath,
William Whiting. (1825–) 1860. And bind the tempest with Thy will ; 1143
Tread, as of old, the water's path,
And speak Thy bidding,“ Peace, bestill." 1 While o'er the deep Thy servants sail,
Send Thou, O Lord, the prosperous gale; 4. And when there shall be sea no more, And on their hearts where'er they go, Save that of mingled flame and glass, O let Thy heavenly breezes blow.
Where goes no galley sped by oar, 2 If on the morning's wings they fly,
Where gallant ships no longer pass; They will not pass beyond Thine eye: 15 When dawns the Resurrection morn, The wanderer's prayer Thou bend'st to hear, Upon that shore, O Jesus, stand,
And faith exults to know Thee near. And give Thy pilgrims, faint and worn, 3 When tempests rock the groaning bark,
Their welcome to the Happy Land. O hide them safe in Jesus' ark;
