"ATHER of faithful Abrah’m, hear, HYMN 222. C. M. Gibbons.

Our earnest suit for Abrah'm's seed;

Justly they claim the warmest prayer St. Asaphs, Abridge.

From us, adopted in their stead; Prayer for the success of missions.

Who mercy through their fall obtain, 1 L Aim with thy Spirit's power,

ORD, send thy word,and let it fly, And Chrisť by their rejection gain. Ten thousands shall confess its sway,

2 Outcast from thee, and scatter'd wide And bless the saving hour.

Through every nation under heaven, 2 Beneath the influence of thy grace,

Blaspheming whom they crucified, The barren wastes shall rise,

Unsav'd, unpity'd, unforgiven ; With sudden greens and fruits array’d, Abhorr'd of men, and curs'd of God.

Branded like Cain, they bear their load, A blooming paradise. 3 True holiness shall strike its root, 3 But hast thou finally forsook, In each regenerate heart;

Forever cast thy own away? Shall in a growth divine arise,

Wilt thou not bid the murderers look And heavenly fruits impart.

On him they pierc’d, and weep and 4 Peace, with her olives crown’d, shall Yes, gracious Lord, thy, word is past; stretch

66 All Israel shall be say'd at last.” Her wings from shore to shore; No trump shall rouse the rage of war, 4 Come then, thou great Deliverer, come; Nor murderous cannon roar.

The veil from Jacob's heart remove;

Receive thy ancient people home ; 5 Lord, for those days we wait; those days Are in thy word foretold;

That, quicken'd by thy dying love, Fly swifter, sun, and stars, and bring And shout to God the glory due.

The world may their reception view, This promis'd age of gold. 6 Amen-with joy divine, let earth's. HYMN 225. S. M. Unnumber'd myriads cry;

Shirland, Mount Ephraiin, Germany. Amen—with joy divine, let heaven's Missionaries addressed and encouraged. Unnumber'd choirs reply.

With sacred courage go. 2 But, Lord, thy greater love has sent 3 Mountains shall sink to plains, Thy gospel to mankind,

And hell in vain oppose; Unveiling what rich stores of grace The cause is God's, and must prevail,

Are treasur'd in thy mind. In spite of all his foes. 3 Lord, when shall these glad tidings 4 Go, spread a Saviour's fame: spread

And tell his matchless grace, The spacious earth around, To the most guilty and deprav'd Till every-tribe, and every soul Of Adam's numerous race.

Shall hear the joyful sound? 4 Smile, Lord, on each divine attempt 5 We wish you in his name, To spread the gospel rays;

The most divine success; And build on sin's demolish'a throne Assur'd that he who sends you forth The temples of thy praise.
