4 E'en rebels shall partake thy grace,
And humble proselytes repair
And all the world pay homage there.
Be daily his great Name ador'd;
Of life and death the sov’reign Lord. 71
I live upon thy truth;
And strengthen'd all my youth.
Repeated ev'ry year ;
I trust them to thy care.
When hoary hairs arise ;
Whene'er thy servant dies.
When men review my days,
In every line thy praise.
L. M. Missionary. 1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Doth his successive journeys run;
Till moons shall wax and wane no more. 2 To Him shall endless prayer be made,
And princes throng to crown his head ;
Dwell on his love with sweetest song;
Their early blessings on his name.]
The pris'ner leaps to lose his chains ;
And all the sons of want are blest.
Death and the curse are known no more;
More blessings than their father lost.] 6 Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honours to our King ;.
Great David's greater Son!
His reign on earth begun!
To set the captive free,
And rule in equity.
2 Arabia's desert-ranger
To Him shall bow the knee;
His glory come to see:
Ships from the isles shall meet
In tribute at his feet.
3 Kings shall fall down before Him,
And gold and incense bring ;
His praise all people sing :
O'er river, sea, and shore,
Or dove's light wing can soar.
4 To Him shall prayer unceasing,
And daily vows, ascend;
A kingdom without end :
He on his throne shall rest,
All-blessing and all-blest.
C. M. God longed for in his house. 1 O God of hosts, the mighty Lord,
How lovely is the place,
The brightness of thy face!
To view thy blest abode ;
For Thee, the living God. 3 Thrice happy they, whose choice has Thee
Their sure protection made; Who long to tread the sacred ways
That to thy dwelling lead !
'Tis better to attend,
A thousand days to spend.
5[For God, who is our sun and shield,
Will grace and glory give;
From them that justly live.]
How highly blest is he,
Is still repos'd on Thee!] 90
C. M. The eternal God our refuge. 10 God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
And our eternal home!
Thy saints have dwelt secure :
And our defence is sure.
Or earth receiv'd her frame,
To endless years the same. 4[A thousand ages in thy sight
Are like an ev'ning gone;
Before the rising sun.]
