1. SEE, from Zion's sacred mountain,

Streams of living water flow;
God has opened there a fountain
That supplies the world below;

They are blessed
Who its sovereign virtues know.
2. Through ten thousand channels flowing

Streams of mercy find their way:
Life, and health, and joy bestowing,
Waking beauty from decay.

O, ye nations,
Hail the long-expected day.
3. Gladdened by the flowing treasure,

All-enriching as it goes,
Lo! the desert smiles with pleasure,
Buds and blossoms as the

rose;
Lo! the desert
Sings for joy where'er it flows.

1. Men of God, go take your stations,

Darkness reigns o'er all the carth-
Go, proclaim among the nations
Joyful news of heavenly birth-

Bear the tidings,
Tell the Saviour's matchless worth.
2. Go—and when exposed to dangers,

Jesus will your souls defend;
Go, and when 'mid foes and strangers,
He will still appear your Friend-

His kind presence
Shall be with you to the end.

1. CIIEEK grow pale, but heart be vigorous;

Body fail, but soul have peace;
Welcome, pain! thou searcher rigorous,
Slay me, but my faith increase.

2. Sin, o'er sense so softly stealing;

Doubt, that would my strength impair;
Hence at once from life and feeling-

Now my cross I gladly bear.
3. Up, my soul! with clear sedateness

Read heaven's law, writ bright and broad, Up! a sacrifice to greatness,

Truth, and goodness—up to God! 4. Up to labor! from thee shaking

Off the bonds of sloth, be brave!
Give thyself to prayer and waking;

Toil some fainting heart to save!

MISS BREMER,

1. Yes! we trust the day is breaking,

Joyful things are near at hand;
God, the mighty God, is speaking
By His word in every land;

God is speaking--
Darkness flies at His command.
2. With the voice of joy and singing

Let us hail the dawning ray ;
Lo! the blessed day-star, bringing
O'er the earth a glorious day;

At his rising
Gloom and darkness flee away.

1. Hark! what mean those lamentations,

Rolling sadly through the sky ?
T is the cry of heathen nations-

“Come and help us, or we die!"
2. Hear the heathen's sad complaining !

Christians! hear their dying cry;
And, the love of Christ constraining,

Haste to help them, ere they die.

8s, 78 & 4s. 1. O'er the realms of

pagan

darkness
Let the eye of pity gaze;
See the thronging, wandering nations,
Lost in sin's bewildering maze:

Darkness brooding
On the face of all the earth.
2. Light of them that sit in darkness,

Rise and shine! Thy blessings bring:
Light to lighten all the Gentiles !
Rise with healing in Thy wing;

To Thy brightness
Let all kings and nations come.
3. May the millions now adoring

Idol-gods of wood and stone
Come, and worshiping before Him,
Serve the living God alone:

Let Thy glory
Fill the carth as floods the sea.
4. Thou, to whom all power is given,

Speak the word ; at Thy command
Let the heralds of Thy mercy
Spread Thy name from land to land;

Lord, be with them,

Always, to the end of time. 996.

88, 7s & As.
1. O'er the gloomy hills of darkness,

Cheered by no celestial ray,
Sun of righteousness! arising,
Bring the bright, the glorious day;

Send the Gospel
To the earth's remotest bound.
2. Kingdoms wide that sit in darkness-

Grant them, Lord! the glorious light;
And, from the eastern coast to western,
May the morning chase the night;

And redemption,
Freely purchased, win the day.

COTTERELL

3. Fly abroad, thou mighty Gospel !

Win and conquer, never cease;
May thy lasting, wide dominions,
Multiply and still increase;

Sway Thy scepter,
Saviour! all the world around.

7s & 6s.

1. The morning light is breaking,

The darkness disappears;
The sons of earth are waking

To penitential tears,
Each breeze that sweeps the ocean

Brings tidings from afar
Of nations in commotion,

Prepared for Zion's war,
2. Rich dews of

f grace come o'er us
In many a gentle shower;
And brighter scenes before us

Are opening every hour :
Each cry to heaven going

Abundant answer brings;
And heavenly gales are blowing,

With peace upon their wings.
3. 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.
4. Blest river of salvation,

Pursue thine onward way;
Flow thou to every nation,

Nor in thy richness stay :

Stay not till all the lowly

Triumphant reach their home;
Stay not till all the holy
· Proclaim-" The Lord is come.”

[blocks in formation]

1. Roll on, thou mighty ocean;

And, as thy billows flow,
Bear messengers of mercy

To every land below.
Arise, ye gales, and waft them

Safe to the destined shore;
That man may sit in darkness

And death's black shade no more.
2. O Thou eternal Ruler,

Who holdest in Thine arm
The tempests of the ocean,

Protect them from all harm !
Thy presence, Lord, be with them,

Wherever they may be;
Though far from us, who love them,
Still let them be with Thee.

[blocks in formation]

1. WRETCHED, helpless, and distress'd,

Ah! whither shall I lly;
Ever gasping after rest-

I can not find it nigh:
Naked, sick, and poor, and blind-

Fast bound in sin and misery-
Friend of sinners, let me find

My help, my all in Thee.
2. Clothe me, Lord, with holiness,

With mcek humility;
Put on me that glorious dress-
Endue

my

soul with Thee:
