4 Waft, waft, ye winds, his story,
And you, ye waters, roll, Till, like a sea of glory,
It spreads from pole to pole ;
The Lamb for sinners slain,
HYMN 139. L. M.
Prayer for Zion's increase. 1
Put on thy strength-the nations shake, And let the world, adoring, see
Triumphs of mercy wrought by thee. 2 Say to the heathen, from thy throne,
“I am Jehovah God alone :"
And cast their altars to the ground. 3 No more let human blood be spilt
Vain sacrifice for human guilt !
The blood that flow'd from Jesus' side. 4 Almighty God, thy grace proclaim,
In ev'ry land, of ev'ry name;
HYMN 140. C. M.
The latter day glory. 1 EHOLD ! the mountain of the Lord,
BEH Datter dagushanttise
Above the mountains and the hills,
And draw the wond'ring eyes. 2 To this the joyful nations round,
All tribes and tongues, shall flow : “Up to the hill of God,” they say,
« And to his courts we'll go.'
Shall lighten ev'ry land :
Shall all the world command.
Their millions slain deplore : They hang the trumpet in the hall,
And study war no more. 5 Come then-Oh, come from ev'ry land,
To worship at his shrine : And walking in the light of God,
With holy beauties shine.
Blessings of Christ's reig.. 1 AIL to the Lord's anointed !
: Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun ! He comes to break oppression,
To set the captive free: To take away transgression,
And rule in equity. 2 He comes, with succor speedy,
To those who suffer wrong ; To help the poor and needy,
And bid the weak be strong ; To give them songs for sighing,
Their darkness turn to light, Whose souls condemnd anddying,
Were precious in his sight.
Upon the fruitful earth,
Spring in his path to birth :
Shall peace the herald go, And righteousness in fountains
From hill to valley flow. 4 For him shall pray'r unceasing,
And daily vows ascend; His kingdom still increasing,
A kingdom without end :
His covenant remove ;
HYMN 142. C. M.
The Prince of Peace. 1
Who taste the Saviour's grace :
And crown him“ Prince of Peace." 2 Praise him, who laid his glory by,
For man's apostate race ;
And crown him “ Prince of Peace.” 3 Ye nations, lay your weapons down,
Let war forever cease;
And crown him “ Prince of Peace.” 4 We soon shall reach the heav'nly shore,
To view his lovely face ;
His name forever to adore,
HYMN 143. P. M. 8, 7, 4.
Longing for the spread of the Gospel. 1 'ER the gloomy hills of darkness; Cheer'd
by no celestial ray,
Send the gospel
To the earth's remotest bound.
Grant them, Lord, the glorious light !
Freely purchas'd, win the day. 3 Fly abroad, thou mighty gospel
Win and conquer, never cease ;
Sway thy sceptre,
HYMN 144. L. M.
For Christian Missionaries, ARK'D as the purpose of the skies, That heathen worlds the Lord shall know,
And warm'd with faith each bosom glow. 2 E'en now the hallow'd scenes appear,
E'en now unfolds the promis'd year,
And bear the tidings of thy grace.
Where heathen darkness brooding reigns,
And nerve their arm, and clear their view. 4 When worn by toil, their spirits fail,
Bid them the glorious future hail :
The eastern star shall shed her light,
The stormy passions of the soul.
His humble cot, which still is dear ;
HYMN CXLV. CXLVI. CXLVIL, B. II.
Farewell to Missionaries.
Upon thy gentle wing,
And angels joy to sing.
Ánd dry the sorr'wing tear ;
The drooping spirit cheer.
By his resistless pow'r,
They fall to rise no more,
As he from heav'n descendsArrests his proudest enemies, And changes them to friends.
HYMN 146. P. M. 7.
The song of Jubilee. HALoud as mighty thunders roar,
! the , 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 depth unto the skies, Wakes above, beneath, around,
All creation's harmonies :See Jehovah's banner furld,
Sheath'd his sword : he speaks : '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 :
Yonder beav'ns have pass'd away :
Man's last enemy shall fall ;
1 W Hasted through the former year,
Many souls their race have run,
Never more to meet us here. 2 Fix'd in an eternal state,
They have done with all below; We a little longer wait,
But how little-none can know. 3 As the winged arrow flies,
Speedily the mark to find;
and leaves no trace behind ; 4 Swiftly thus our fleeting days,
Bear us down life's rapid stream; Upwards, Lord, our spirits raise,
All below is but a dream. 5 Thanks for mercies past receive,
Pardon of our sins renew ; Teach us henceforth how to live,
With eternity in view. 6 Bless thy word to young and old,
Fill us with the Saviour's love; And when life's short tale is told, May we dwell with thee above.
'HYMN 148. L. M. Prayer for the children of the church. EAR Saviour, if these lambs should stray,
And, lur'd by worldly joys away,
Among the thoughtless crowd be found. 2 Remember still that they are thine,
That thy dear sacred name they bear, Think that the seal of love divine,
The sign of cov'nant grace they wear. 3 In all their erring, sinful years,
Oh, let them ne'er forgotten be ;
Which made them consecrate to thee. 4 And when these lips no more can pray,
These eyes can weep for them no more,
HYMN 149. L. M.
Poor Children's appeal to Christians. 1
IN God's own house by silent night,
And there by viewless angels kept,
Samuel tbe child securely slept. 2 A voice unknown the stillness broke,
“Samuel" it call'd, and thrice it spoke ;
