5th P. M. 4 lines 7s. The banner of the cross. ye messengers of God; Like the beams of morning, Ny; Take the wonder-working rod;.

Wave the banner-cross on high.
9 Go to many a tropic isle

In the basom of the deep,
Where the skies forever smile,

And the oppress'd forever weep.
3. O'er the pagan's night of care

Pour the living light of heaven;
Chnse away his wild despair;

Bid him hope to be forgiven.
4 Where the golden gates of day

Open on the palmy East,
High the bleeding cross display;

Spread the Gospel's richest feast.
985

I will gather all nations.
PATHER of boundless grace,
Thy promise made to Adun's race,

In God incarnate seal'd.
A few from every land

At first to Salem came,
And saw the wonders of thy hand,

And saw the tongues of Aame.
2 Yet still we wait the end, -

The coming of our Loril;
The full accomplishment attend

Of thy prophetic word.
Thy promise deeper lies,

In unexhausted grace:
And new-aiscover'd worlds arise

To sing their Saviour's praise.

S.M.

Creating Spirit, as of old,

Move on the forunless yoid.
9 Give thou the word ; that healing sound

Shall quell the deadly strife;
And earth again, like Eden crown'd,

Bring forth the tree of life.
8 If sang the morning stars for joy,

When nature rose to view,
What strains will angel-harps employ,

When thou shalt all renew!
4 And if the sons of God rejoice

To hear a Saviour's name,
How will the ransom'd raise their voice,

To whom the Saviour came!
5 Lo, every kindred, every tribe,

Assembling round the throne,
The new creation shall ascribe

To sov'reign love alone.

And wintry clouds o'ercast the sky, Thy words with pleasure we recall,

Ảnd deem that our redemption 's nigh. 8 O! come, and reign o'er every land ;

To wait for thine appointed hour; And fit us, by thy grace, to share The triumphs of thy conqu’ring power,

Let there be light.
THOW, whose almighty word

Chaos and darkness heard,
And took their fight;
Hear tis, we humbly pray,
And where the Gospel day
Sheds not its glorious ray,

Let there be light.
3 Thou, who didst come to bring,
On thy redeeming wing,

Healing and sight,
Health to the sick in mind,
Sight to the inly blind,-
O now, to all mankind,

Let there be light.
3 Spirit of truth and love,
Life-giving, holy Dove,

Speed forth thy flight; Move on the waters' face, Bearing the lamp of grace; And in earth's darkest place,

Let there be light,

S. M. The Redeemer's triumphant reign. 0

THOU whom we adore,

To bless our earth again,
Assume thine own almighty power,

And o'er the nations reign.
The world's Desire and Hope,

All power to thee is given;
Now set the last great empire up,

Eternal Lord of heaven.
2 Where all thy laws are spurn'd,

Thy holy name profaned,
And where the ruin'd world has mourn'a,

With blood of millions stain'd:
Reveal the glorious scene;

The heathen claim for thine;
And there the endless reign begin

With majesty divine.
3 A gracious Saviour, thou

Wilt all thy creatures bless;
And every knee to thee shall bow,

And every tongue confess.
According to thy word,

Now be thy grace reveal'd;
And with the knowledge of the Lord,

Let all the earth be fil'd.

Before thy face, dread King, we stand
The voice that marshall'd every star,
Has call'd thy people from afar.
2 We meet through distant lands to spread
The truth for which the martyrs bled;
Along the line--to either pole
The anthem of thy praise to roll.

On all thy saints to shine ;2 That so thy wondrous way

May through the world be known; While distant lands their homage pay,

And thy salvation own. 3 Let all the nations join

To celebrate thy fame;
And all the world, O Lord, combine

To praise thy glorious Name. 992

L.M. Light for those whn mit in darkness. TTHOUGH now the nations sit beneath

On Zion's holy towers to shine.

And wand'ring tribes, in joyful bands,
Shall come, thy glory, Lord, to see,
And in thy courts to worship thee,
3 O light of Zion, now arise!
Let the glad morning bless our eyes;
Ye nations, catch the kindling ray,
And hail the splendours of the day.
