4 Smile, Lord, on each divine attempt
To spread the gospel's rays,

To thine exalted Son,
Thy word of life shall run?
“For thine inheritance,
Thine empire shall advance. 3 From east to west, from north to south,
Then be his name ador’d!
Hosannahs to thy Lord ! 4 Asia and Africa, resound
From shore to shore his fame,
P.M.- The Year of Jubilee. 1 BLOW ye the trumpet, blow
The gladly solemn sound:
To earth's remotest bound,
of jubilee is come;
Hath full atonement made:
Ye mournful souls, be glad;
3 Extol the Lamb of God,
The all-atoning Lamb;
Throughout the world proclaim:
of jubilee is come;
Your liberty receive;
And blest in Jesus live:
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home. 5 Ye who have sold for nought
Your heritage above;
The gift of Jesus' love:
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home. 6 The gospel trumpet hear,
The news of heavenly grace;
Before your Saviour's face:
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:
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,
On all thy saints to shine. 2 That so thy wondrous way
May through the world be known;
And thy salvation own.
To celebrate thy fame;
To praise thy glorious name. 4 O let them shout and sing
With joy and pious mirth;
L.M.- Prayer for Gentiles and Jews. 1 ARM of the Lord! awake, awake!
Put on thy strength, the nations shake!
Triumphs of mercy wrought by thee. 2 Say to the heathen from thy throne,
am Jehovah; God alone!"
And cast their altars to the ground. 3 No more let human blood be spilt,
Vain sacrifice for human guilt!
4 Arm of the Lord, thy power extend,
Let Mahomet's impostures end;
And the proud scoffer's rage restrain. 5 Let Zion's time of favour come!
Oh! bring the tribes of Israel home!
Gentiles and Jews in Jesus' fold.
In every clime, of every name!
530. P.M.- United Exertions for the Spread of the Gospel. 1 HARK! the solemn trumpet sounding,
Loud proclaims the jubilee:
Grace to sinners rich and free;
Publish it to all around.
Does his love your spirits cheer?
Still removing doubt and fear?
Such he'll be to others too.
Wandering from the fold of God?
Nothing save but Jesu's blood?
Strangers to the joyful sound. 4 Brethren, join in supplication,
Join to plead before the Lord,
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.
Till we see him as he is,
that we are his;
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;
Sure earnest of the rising sun.
(A chosen, consecrated band,)
aloud, “ Behold the way!" 3 The north “ gives up,” the south no more
“ Keeps back” her consecrated store;
