Speak! and the desert shall rejoice:
Scatter the gloom of heathen night,
And bid all nations hail the light.

Increase of the Church.

g1R in all thy saving might:
ISE, gracious God! and shine

And prosper each design,

To spread thy glorious light:
Let healing streams of mercy flow,
That all the earth thy truth may know.

The nations then will see,

And earth present her store
In converts born of thee:

God, our own God, his church will bless,
And earth shall yield her full increase.

Prayer for the Reign of Christ.

8 1 JESUS, Immortal King, arise!

Rise and assert thy sway;

Till earth, subdued, its tribute brings,
And distant lands obey.

u 2 Ride forth, victorious Conqueror, ride,
Till all thy foes submit,

And all the powers of hell resign
Their trophies at thy feet!

3 Send forth thy word, and let it fly,
This spacious earth around;
Till every soul beneath the sun
Shall hear the joyful sound!

4 Oh may the great Redeemer's name
Through every clime be known'
And heathen gods, like Dagon, fall,
And Jesus reign alone.

s 5 From sea to sea, from shore to shore,

May Jesus be adored!

And earth, with all her millions shout,
Hosannas to the Lord.

HYMN 379. P. M.

Haddam. [*]

Prayer for the Coming of the Kingdom of God.


ISE, Sun of Glory, rise!

And chase those shades of night

Which now obscure the skies,

And hide the sacred light:

Oh chase those dismal shades away,

And bring the bright millennial day.
-2 Send now thy Spirit down
On all the nations, Lord!
With great success to crown
The preaching of thy word:
That heathen lands may own thy sway,
And cast their idol-gods away.

-3 Then shall thy kingdom come

Among our fallen race,

And the whole earth become

The temple of thy grace;

Whence pure devotion shall ascend

And songs of praise, till time shall end.


HYMN 380. H. M. Darwell's. [*]



Prayer for the Conversion of the World.


OVEREIGN of worlds above,
And Lord of all below,

Thy faithfulness and love,

Thy power and mercy show:

Fulfil thy word,

Thy Spirit give;

Let heathens live,

And praise the Lord.

2 Few be the years that roll,
Ere all shall worship thee;
The travail of his soul

Soon let the Saviour see :

s O God of

Thy power employ;

Fill earth with joy,

And heaven with praise.

HYMN 381. L. M. Luton. [*]

For the Influence of the Spirit on the Word.

10 SPIRIT of the living God!

In all the fulness of thy grace, Where'er the foot of man hath trod, Descend on our apostate race.

2 Give tongues of fire and hearts of love To preach the reconciling word: Give power and unction from above, Whene'er the joyful sound is heard. -3 Be darkness, at thy coming, light; Confusion, order, in thy path;

o Souls without strength, inspire with might, Bid mercy triumph over wrath!

4 Baptize the nations! far and nigh,
The triumphs of the cross record;
The name of Jesus glorify,

Till every kindred call him Lord.
5 God from eternity hath willed-
"All flesh shall my salvation see:"
So be the Father's love fulfilled,

The Saviour's sufferings crowned by thee!"


HYMN 382. C. M. Broomsgrove. [*]


To the Holy Spirit.

SPIRIT of power and might, behold
A world by sin destroyed:

Creator Spirit, as of old,

Move on the formless void.

g 2 Give thou the word: that healing sound
Shall quell the deadly strife,

And earth again, like Eden crowned,
Bring forth the Tree of Life.

s 3 If sang the morning stars for joy,
When nature rose to view,

What strains will angel-harps employ,
When thou shalt all renew!

HYMN 383. 8, 7, & 4.


Tamworth. [*]

THO, but thou, almighty Spirit,
Can the heathen world reclaim?
Men may preach, but till thou favour,
Pagans will be still the same.
Mighty Spirit!

Witness to the Saviour's name.

2 Thou hast promised, by the prophets,
Glorious light in latter days:

Come and bless bewildered nations,
Change our prayers and tears to praise.
Promised Spirit!

Round the world diffuse thy rays.

3 All our hopes, and prayers, and labours,
Must be vain without thine aid;
But thou wilt not disappoint us-
All is true that thou hast said:
Faithful Spirit!

O'er the world thine influence shed.

HYMN 384. C. M. Tolland. [*]


For Millennial Days.

forth thy word, and let it fly, Armed with thy Spirit's power; Ten thousands shall confess its sway, And bless the saving hour!

2 Beneath the influence of thy grace
The barren waste shall rise:

With sudden green and fruits arrayed-
A blooming paradise.

3 Peace, with her olive crown, shall stretch
Her wings from shore to shore;

The nations of the earth shall hear

The sound of war no more.

4 Lord! for those days we wait: those days
Are in thy word foretold:

Fly swifter, sun and stars, and bring
This promised age of gold.

o 5 Amen! with joy divine, let earth's
Unnumbered myriads cry!
Amen! with joy divine, let heaven's
Unnumbered choirs reply.

Tamworth. [*]

Restoration and Glory of the Church.
N the mountain's top appearing,

Welcome news to Zion bearing,
Zion long in hostile lands.
Drooping captive !—

God himself will loose thy bands.

-2 God, thy God, will now restore thee : He himself appears thy friend :

All thy foes shall flee before thee;

Here their boasts and triumphs end:

Great deliverance

Zion's King vouchsafes to send.

3 Enemies no more shall trouble,
All thy wrongs shall be redressed:
"For thy shame thou shalt have double,"
In thy Maker's favour blessed:
All thy conflicts-

End in one eternal rest.

HYMN 386. C. M.


Christmas. [*]

Restoration of Israel.

81D Exalt thy fallen head,

AUGHTER of Zion! from the dust

Again in thy Redeemer trust;
He calls thee from the dead.

☐ 2 Awake, awake, put on thy strength,
Thy beautiful array:

The day of freedom dawns at length,
The Lord's appointed day.

-3 Rebuild thy walls, thy bounds enlarge,
And send thy heralds forth:

Say to the south, "Give up thy charge,
And keep not back, O north."

s 4 They come, they come-thine exiled bands,

Where'er they rest or roam,

Have heard thy voice in distant lands,
And hasten to their home.

Spread of the Gospel.

1 VES! we trust the day is breaking;
Joyful times are near at hand;

God-the mighty God is speaking
By his Word, in every land;
When he chooses,

Darkness flies at his command.

2 While the foe becomes more daring,
While he enters like a flood,

God, the Saviour, is preparing
Means to spread his truth abroad:
Every language

Soon shall tell the love of God.

3 God of Jacob, high and glorious, Let thy people see thy hand:
