Let the gospel be victorious,

Through the world-in every land;
Then shall idols

Perish, Lord-at thy command.

HYMN 388. H. M.


Darwell's. [*]

OZION, tune thy voice,
And raise thy hands on high;

Tell all the earth thy joys,
And boast salvation nigh.
Cheerful in God,
Arise and shine,
While rays divine
Stream all abroad.

−2 He gilds thy mourning face
With beams that cannot fade;
His all-resplendent grace
He pours around thy head.
The nations round

Thy form shall view,
With lustre new
Divinely crowned.

u 3 In honour to his name,
Reflect that sacred light;
And loud that grace proclaim,
Which makes thy darkness bright:
Pursue his praise,

Till sovereign love
In worlds above
The glory raise.

4 There on his holy hill
A brighter sun shall rise,
And with his radiance fill
Those fairer, purer skies;

While round his throne,
Ten thousand stars,
In nobler spheres,
His influence own.

HYMN 389.. 7 & 6.


Romaine. [*]

o 1 H Great David's greater Son;

TAIL to the Lord's anointed!

Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
To set the captive free,

To take away transgression,
And rule in equity.

-2 He comes, with succour speedy
To those who suffer wrong;
To help the poor and needy,
And bid the weak be strong;
To give them songs for sighing,
Their darkness turn to light,
Whose souls, condemned and dying,
Were precious in his sight.
3 For him shall prayer unceasing,
And daily vows ascend;
His kingdom still increasing,
A kingdom without end :
The mountain-dews shall nourish
A seed in weakness sown,
Whose fruit shall spread and flourish,
And shade like Lebanon.

s 4 O'er every foe victorious,
He on his throne shall rest,
From age to age more glorious,
All-blessing and all-blest :
The tide of time shall never
His covenant remove;
His name shall stand forever;

That name to us is-Love.


HYMN 390. 7s. Pilgrim. [*]

Jesus shall reign.

g1 HARK: the Song of Jubilee,

Loud-as mighty thunders roar :

Or the fulness of the sea,

When it breaks upon the shore-
2 Hallelujah! for the Lord,
God Omnipotent, shall reign:
Hallelujah! let the word

Echo round the earth and main.
3 Hallelujah! hark! the sound,
From the centre to the skies,
Wakes, above, beneath, around,
All creation's harmonies!

4 See Jehovah's banners furled,
Sheathed his sword! He speaks-'tis done,
And the kingdoms of this world

Are the kingdom of his Son.



5 He shall reign from pole to pole With illimitable sway:

g He shall reign, when, like a scroll, Yonder heavens have passed away ! -6 Then the end-beneath his rod, Man's last enemy shall fall:

s Hallelujah! Christ in God, God in Christ, is All in All.

HYMN 391. L. M. Park Street. [*] The Redeemer reigns.

SING, for the blest Redeemer reigns,

Through distant lands his triumphs spread;

And sinners, freed from endless pains,

Own him their Saviour and their Head.

-2 His sons and daughters from afar,
Daily at Zion's gates arrive;

Those who were dead in sin before,
By sovereign grace are made alive.
u 3 Oh may his conquests still increase,
And every foe his arm subdue;
While angels celebrate his praise,
And saints his glowing glories shew.
s 4 Loud hallelujahs to the Lamb,
From all below and all above;
In lofty songs exalt his name,
In songs as lasting as his love.

HYMN 392. 7s.


Alcester. [*]

Jesus reigns.
TAKE the song of jubilee,
Let it echo o'er the sea!
Now is come the promised hour;
Jesus reigns with sovereign power!
2 All ye nations, join and sing,
Christ, of lords and kings, is King;
Let it sound from shore to shore,
Jesus reigns for evermore.

3 Now the desert lands rejoice;
And the islands join their voice;
Yea, the whole creation sings,
Jesus is the King of kings.

Encouragement to Missionaries.
EN of God! take
Darkness reigns throughout the earth,




o Go, proclaim among the nations Joyful news of heavenly birth: Bear the tidings—

Of the Saviour's matchless worth!
2 When exposed to fears and dangers,
Jesus will his own defend;

Borne afar midst foes and strangers,
Jesus will appear your Friend;
And his presence-


Shall be with you to the end.


HYMN 394. 7 & 6. Romaine. [*]

R And as thy billows flow,

OLL on, thou mighty ocean!

Bear messengers of mercy

To every land below.

Arise, ye gales! and waft them

Safe to the destined shore;
That man may sit in darkness,
And death's black shade, no more.

20 thou Eternal Ruler!

Who holdest in thine arm The tempests of the ocean,

Protect them from all harm!

Thy presence e'er be with them,
Wherever they may be;

Though far from us who love them,
Still let them be with thee.

HYMN 395. 7s. Pilgrim. [*]

u1 G Like the beams of morning, fly;
O! ye messengers of God,

Take the wonder-working rod,
Wave the Banner-Cross on high!
2 Where th' aspirant minaret
Gleams along the morning skies,
Wave it till the crescent set,
And the "Star of Jacob" rise.
-3 Go! to many a tropic isle,
In the bosom of the deep,
Where the skies for ever smile,
And th' oppressed forever weep!
-4 O'er the negro's night of care
Pour the living light of heaven;
Chase away the fiend despair,
Bid him hope to be forgiven!

8 5 When the golden gates of day
Open on the palmy east,
Wide the bleeding cross display,
Spread the gospel's richest feast.
-6 Circumnavigate the ball,
Visit every soil and sea:

Preach the cross of Christ to all-
Jesus' love is full and free.

HYMN 396. 8, 7, & 4.

J. MARSDEN. Tamworth. [*]

Farewell to Missionaries.

81 G Go, proclaim redeeming blood;

O, ye heralds of salvation,

Publish to that barb'rous nation,
Peace and pardon from our God;
Tell the heathen,

None but Christ can do them good.
-2 While the gospel trump you're sounding,
May the Spirit seal the word,


And, through sovereign grace abounding,
Heathen bow and own the Lord;
Idols leaving,

God alone shall be adored.

-3 Distant though our souls are blending,
Still our hearts are warm and true;
In our prayers to heaven ascending,
Brethren-we'll remember you;
Heaven preserve you,
Safely all your journey through.
4 When your mission here is finished,
And your work on earth is done,
May your souls, by grace replenished,
Find acceptance through the Son;
Thence admitted,

Dwell for ever near his throne.
u 5 Loud hosannas now resounding,
Make the heavenly arches ring:
Grace to sinful men abounding,
Ransomed millions sweetly sing;
While with rapture,

All adore their heavenly King.


HYMN 397. 8, 7, & 4. Smyrna. [b]

Missionaries' Farewell.

P1Y All thy scenes I love them well.

TES, my native land, I love thee;
