Lord, let the gospel-trumpet blow,
And earth's remotest ends draw near. 5 Let Babylon's proud altars shake,
And light invade her darkest glooni;
The yoke of Satan and of Rome.
Like heavenly dew in copious showers,
That we may hail salvation ours.
United shouts of joy to raise:
IN A STATE OF REVIVAL.
C. M. 583.
Luke. xv. 10. 104,
how divine, how sweet the joy, And with an humble, broken heart,
His sins and errors mourns!
9 Pleas'd with the news the saints below,
In songs their tongues employ;
Ånd heaven is fill’d with joy. $ Well pleas'd the Father sees and hearg
The conscious sinner's moan;
And claims him for his own.
But kindle with new fire: 1. The sinner lost is found,” they sing And strike the sounding lyre.
To call upon the Lord;
In which they scorn'd his word. 2 Young converts sing, and praise their King
And bless God's holy name; While older saints leave their complaints,
And joy to join the theme. 3 God's chariot rolls, and frights the souls
Of those who hate the truth: And saints in pray’r cry, “Lord, draw near,
Have mercy on the youth:-
And melt each stubborn heart;
And holy joys impart.”
And pray with one accord: Saints, raise your songs, with joyful tongues, To hail th' approaching Lord.
P. M. 585.
Isa. lii. 7.
Lo, the sacred herald stands;
All thy friends unfaithful prov'?
Cease thy mourning,
3 Gd, thy God, will now restore thee!
lle himself appears thy friend: All thy foes shall flee before thee, Here their boasts and triumphs end:
All thy warfare now is past,
All thy conflicts

OW we hail the happy dawning
Of the Gospel's glorious light,
Blessed Saviour, Let our eyes behold the sight. 2 Where, amid the desert dreary,
Plant, nor shrub, nor flowret grows, There refresh the wand'rer weary, With the sight of Sharou's Rose,
And its beauties To the longing eye disclose. 3 Where the beasts of prey are prowling,
And the murd'rous serpents hiss, There exchange the dismal howling For the pleasing calm of peace;
And for ever May destruction's empire cease. 4 Oh, let all the world adore thee
Úniversal be thy fame;

Isaiah lii. 10. 1 YES! we trust the day is breaking;
Joyful times are near at hand. God, the mighty God, is speaking By his word in ev'ry land:
When he chooses, Darkness flies at his command. 2 Let us hail the joyful season;
Let us hail the dawning ray:
At his presence
While he enters like a flood;
Ev'ry language Soon shall tell the love of God. 4 God of Jacob, high and glorious,
Let thy people see thy hand;
And the idols

Prayer for opposers of revivalo. 1 BLEST Lord, behold the guilty scorn
Of those who hate and mock our praise; Pity their state, and make them turn,
No more to walk in sinful ways. 2 Anxious we see their wretched state,
Who never think of heav'n or hell;
They laugh and sport, and court the gate,
Which opes where endless terrors dwell. 3 Lead them to view a sinful heart,
A soul all enmity to thee,
Too proud to bow, too blind to see. « Lead them to view a holy law,
Which justly dooms to endless death,
And pray'd, Forgive,' with dying breath. 5 Open their eyes, unstop their ears,
To hear condemning justice sound;
Admitting a Member.
To Jesus and his servants dear,
Enter, and find that God is here.
Of fellowship to thee we give! With open arms and hearts we stand,
And thee in Jesus' name receive. Say, is thy heart resolv'd as ours?
Then let it burn with sacred love: Then let it taste the heavenly powers,
Partaker of the joys above. 4 Jesus, attend, thyself reveal,
Are we not met in thy great name? Thee in the midst we wait to feel,
We wait to catch the spreading flame. 3 Truly our fellowship below With thee, and with the Father isz
