George James Webb. (1803–) 1830

To reign in every nation,

To rule in every zone:
O wide-world coronation,

In every heart a throne. 3 Awake, awake, O Zion,

The bridal day draws nigh,
The day of signs and wonders,

And marvels from on high :
Thy sun uprises slowly,

But keep thou watch and ward;
Fair Bride, all pure and lowly,
Go forth to meet thy Lord,

Benjamin Gough. (1805–) 1865. ab

WEBB. 7, 6. D.

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
2 See heathen nations bending

Before the God we love,
And thousand hearts ascending,

In gratitude above;
While sinners, now confessing,

The gospel call obey,
And seek the Saviour's blessing,

A nation in a day.
3 Blest river of salvation,

Pursue thine onward way; Flow thou to every nation,

Nor in thy riches stay:
Stay not, till all the lowly

Triumphant reach their home;
Stay not, till all the holy
Proclaim, “ The Lord is come."

Rev. Samuel Francis Smith, (1808–) 1831. ab.

The coming Millennium. I AWAKE, awake, O Zion,

Put on thy strength divine, Thy garments bright in beauty,

The bridal dress be thine:
Jerusalem the holy,

To purity restored;
Meek Bride, all fair and lowly,

Go forth to meet thy Lord.
2 The Lamb who bore our sorrows

Comes down to earth again; No Sufferer now,

but Victor, For evermore to reign;

1134 The good Tidings.
i How beauteous on the mountains,

The feet of him that brings,
Like streams from living fountains,

Good tidings of good things;
That publisheth salvation,

And jubilee release,
To every tribe and nation,

God's reign of joy and peace.
2 Lift up thy voice, O watchman,

And shout from Zion's towers
Thy hallelujah chorus,

“The victory is ours!”
The Lord shall build up Zion

In gl and renown,
And Jesus, Judah's Lion,
Shall wear His rightful crown.

Benjamin Gough. 1865. ab. and sl. alt.

1135 Prayer for a Revival of Religion.
2 Carry on Thy victory,

Spread Thy rule from sea to sea;
Rescue all Thy ransomed race,

Save us, save us, Lord, by grace.
3 Take the purchase of Thy blood,

Bring us to a pardoning God;
Give us eyes to see our day,

Hearts the gospel truth to obey;
4 Ears to hear the gospel sound;

Grace doth more than sin abound;
God appeased, and man forgiven,

Peace on earth, and joy in heaven.
5 O that every soul might be

Perfectly subdued to Thee;
O that all in Thee might know

Everlasting life below.
6 Now Thy mercy's wings expand,

Stretch throughout the happy land:
Take possession of Thy home;
Come, divine Emmanuel, come.

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;
Flowing purely from above,

Beauty marks their course afar.
2 Lo, Thy Church, athirst and faint,

Drinks the full, refreshing tide;
Thou last heard her sad complaint,

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.
4 While we lift our grateful song,

Let Thy Spirit still descend;
Roll the side of grace along,
Widening, deepening, to the end.

Rev. Ray Palmer. (1808–) 1832, 1865 1137

Zion enlarged.
1 Who are these that come from far,

Led by Jacob's rising star?
Strangers now to Zion come,

There to seek a peaceful home.
2 Lo, they gather like a cloud,

Or as doves their windows crowd:
Zion wonders at the sight,

Zion feels a strange delight.
3 Zion now no more shall sigh,

God will raise her glory high;
He will send a large increase,

He will give His people peace.
4 Sons of Zion, sing aloud;

See her sky without a cloud:
God will make her joy complete;

Zion's sun shall never set. ket. Thomas Kelly. (1769-1855.) 1806. ab. and all 1138

Glory to Messiah's name;
Hymns of praise unheard before
Echo from the farthest shore.

1140 Christ reigning over all the Earth.
I WAKE the song of jubilee ;

Let it echo o'er the sca:
Now is come the promised hour;

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 !"
3 Hark, the desert lands rejoice;

And the islands join their voice :
Joy! the whole creation sings,
“Jesus is the King of kings !"

1141 The Song of Jubilee."
I HARK, the song of jubilee,

Loud as mighty thunders roar,
Or the fulness of the sea,

When it breaks upon the shore:
Hallelujah! for the Lord

God Omnipotent shall reign;
Hallelujah! let the word

Echo round the earth and main. 2 Hallelujah! hark, the sound,

From the centre to the skies,
Wakes above, beneath, around,

All creation's harmonics.
See Jehovah's banners furled,

Sheathed Hissword: Hespeaks; 'tis done,
And the kingdoms of this world

Are the kingdoms of His Son. 3 He shall reign from pole to pole

With illimitable sway ;
He shall reign, when like a scroll

Yonder heavens have passed away:
Then the end; beneath His rod

Man's last enemy shall fall :
Hallelujah! Christ in God,

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,

For Seamen.

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,
Prayer for Mariners.

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;

“ Save, Lord, or we perish."

Matt. viii. 25.
2 O Jesus, once rocked on the breast of the billow,

Aroused by the shriek of despair from Thy pillow,
Now seated in glory, the poor sinner cherish,
Who cries in his anguish, “Save, Lord, or we perish.”
