4 Smile, Lord, on each divine attempt

To spread the gospel's rays,
And build, on sin's demolish'd throne,
The temples of thy praise.


C.M.— The Promise pleaded. 1 FATHER, is not thy promise pledged

To thine exalted Son,
That through the nations of the earth

Thy word of life shall run?
2 Ask, and I give the heathen lands

“For thine inheritance,
And to the world's remotest shores

Thine empire shall advance. 3 From east to west, from north to south,

Then be his name ador’d!
Europe, with all thy millions shout

Hosannahs to thy Lord ! 4 Asia and Africa, resound

From shore to shore his fame,
And thou, America, in songs,
Redeeming love proclaim.


P.M.- The Year of Jubilee. 1 BLOW ye the trumpet, blow

The gladly solemn sound:
Let all the nations know

To earth's remotest bound,

of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home.
2 Jesus, our great High Priest,

Hath full atonement made:
Ye weary spirits, rest;

Ye mournful souls, be glad;
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransom’d sinners, home.

3 Extol the Lamb of God,

The all-atoning Lamb;
Redemption through his blood,

Throughout the world proclaim:

of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransom’d sinners, home.
4 Ye slaves of sin and hell,

Your liberty receive;
And safe in Jesus dwell,

And blest in Jesus live:
The year of jubilee is come;

Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home. 5 Ye who have sold for nought

Your heritage above;
Receive it back unbought,

The gift of Jesus' love:
The year of jubilee is come;

Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home. 6 The gospel trumpet hear,

The news of heavenly grace;
And, sav'd from earth, appear

Before your Saviour's face:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home.

527. L.M.— For the Spread of the Gospel. 1 CAPTAIN of thine enlisted host,

Display thy glorious banner high! The summons send from coast to coast,

And call a numerous army nigh. 2 A solemn jubilee proclaim,

Proclaim the great sabbatic day:
Assert the glories of thy name;
Spoil Satan of his wish’d-for


3 Bid, bid thy heralds publish loud

The peaceful blessings of thy reign; And when they speak of sprinkling blood, The mystery to the heart explain.

528. S.M.-" That thy Way may be known,” &c. Ps. lxvii. 1 TO bless thy chosen race,

In mercy, Lord, incline,
And cause the brightness of thy face

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

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

And thy salvation own.
3 Let differing nations join

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

To praise thy glorious name. 4 O let them shout and sing

With joy and pious mirth;
For thou the righteous Judge and King,
Shalt govern all the earth.


L.M.- Prayer for Gentiles and Jews. 1 ARM of the Lord! awake, awake!

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,

am Jehovah; God alone!"
Thy voice their idols shall confound,

And cast their altars to the ground. 3 No more let human blood be spilt,

Vain sacrifice for human guilt!
But to each conscience be applied,
The blood that flow'd from Jesus' side,

4 Arm of the Lord, thy power extend,

Let Mahomet's impostures end;
Break superstition's papal chain,

And the proud scoffer's rage restrain. 5 Let Zion's time of favour come!

Oh! bring the tribes of Israel home!
And let our wondering eyes behold

Gentiles and Jews in Jesus' fold.
6 Almighty God! thy grace proclaim,

In every clime, of every name!
Let adverse powers before thee fall,
And crown the Saviour Lord of all!

530. P.M.- United Exertions for the Spread of the Gospel. 1 HARK! the solemn trumpet sounding,

Loud proclaims the jubilee:
'Tis the voice of grace abounding,

Grace to sinners rich and free;
Ye who know the joyful sound,

Publish it to all around.
2 Is the name of Jesus precious?

Does his love your spirits cheer?
Do you find him kind and gracious,

Still removing doubt and fear?
Think that what he is to you,

Such he'll be to others too.
3 Were you once at awful distance,

Wandering from the fold of God?
Could no arm afford assistance,

Nothing save but Jesu's blood?
Think how many still are found

Strangers to the joyful sound. 4 Brethren, join in supplication,

Join to plead before the Lord,
"Tis his arm that brings salvation,

He alone can give the word.

Father let thy kingdom come,

Bring thy wandering outcasts home. 5 Brethren, let us freely offer;

All we have is from above; Let us give, and act, and suffer;

What is this to Jesus' love! Did he die our souls to save?

Then we're his, and all we have. 6 Hark! the saints' triumphant chorus,

“ Worthy is the Lamb,” they cry; They have gain'd the prize before us,

Soon we hope to share their joy; But while here, remember still,

They who love him, do his will.
7 Till we reach the wish'd-for vision,

Till we see him as he is,
Let us scorn the world's derision,

that we are his;
Let us sound through all the earth,
Christ's inestimable worth.

Let us prove


P.M.-“ I will bring thy Seed from the East,” 8c. Isa. xliii. 5,6. 1 MY soul, with sacred joy survey

The glories of the latter day;
Its dawn already seems begun,

Sure earnest of the rising sun.
2 The friends of truth assembled stand,

(A chosen, consecrated band,)
The standard of the cross display,

aloud, “ Behold the way!" 3 The north “ gives up,” the south no more

“ Keeps back” her consecrated store;
From east to west the message runs,
And either India yields her sons.
