HYMN 279. S. M. [#]

Scripture a Guide.

1 How choice the book divine,
By inspiration given!
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine,
To guide our souls to heaven.

2 It cheers our drooping hearts
In this dark vale of tears;
Life, light, and joy, it still imparts,
And quells our rising fears.
3 This lamp, through all the night
Of life, shall guide our way,
Till we behold the clearer light
Of an eternal day.


HYMN 280. C. M. [#]

Triumph of Christianity.

1 O'ER mountain tops, the mount of God
In latter days shall rise
Above the summits of the hills,
And draw the wondering eyes.
2 To this, the joyful nations round,
All tribes and tongues, shall flow;

Up to this mountain of their God,
With songs of triumph go.

3 The beams that shine from Zion's hill
Shall lighten every land;

The King who reigns in Salem's towers
Shall the whole world command.

4 No war shall rage; no hostile feuds Disturb those peaceful years:

To plough-shares men shall beat their swords, To pruning-hooks their spears.

5 No longer host, encountering host,
Shall crowds of slain deplore;
They'll lay the martial trumpet by,
And study war no more.

HYMN 281. H. M. [# or b]


1 BLOW ye the trumpet, blow
The gladly solemn sound;
Let all the nations know,
To earth's remotest bound,
year of jubilee is come :
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

2 Behold the Son of God,
Commissioned from above,
To all the human race,
The Messenger of love :
year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

3 The gospel trumpet hear,

The news of pardoning grace;

Ye happy souls, draw near;
Behold your Saviour's face :
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
4 Jesus, our great High Priest,

The Father's love displayed;
Ye weary spirits, rest;

Ye mourning souls, be glad : The year of jubilee is come; Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

HYMN 282. P. M. [#]

New Jerusalem.

1 AWAY with our sorrow and fear; We soon shall recover our home; The city of saints shall appear,

The day of eternity come :
From earth we shall quickly remove,
And mount to our native abode,
The house of our Father above,

The palace of angels and God. 2 By faith we already behold

That lovely Jerusalem here;
Her walls are of jasper and gold;

As crystal her buildings are clear;
Immovably founded in grace,

She stands as she ever hath stood, And brightly her Builder displays,

And flames with the glory of God.

3 No need of the sun in that day,

Which never is followed by night,

Where Christ does his brightness display,
A pure and a permanent light :
The Lamb is their Light and their Sun,
And lo, by reflection, they shine,
With Jesus ineffably one,

And bright in effulgence divine!

HYMN 283. C. M. [#]
Heavenly Zion.

1 BEHOLD, on Zion's heavenly shore,
A pure and countless band,
Whose conflicts and whose toils are o'er,
In glorious order stand.

2 From earth's remotest bounds they came, From tribulations great,

And, through the victories of the Lamb, Have reached the heavenly state.

3 Their robes are washed in Jesus' blood
From every stain of sin;
They stand before the throne of God,
And of his mercies sing.

4 Hunger and thirst they know no more,
From burning heats refreshed;
The Lamb shall feed them from his store,
And give them endless rest.

5 God all their tears shall wipe away,
And they his wonders tell,
While in his temple they shall stay,
And God with them shall dwell.

HYMN 284.

C. M. [#]

New Creation.

1 WHEN will the eyelids of that morn
Open upon our sight,

When all creation shall be born,
And day disperse the night?

2 When will the Sun of Righteousness,
With healing in his wings,

The numerous sons of Adam bless
With love's eternal springs?

3 The promised day will surely come;
Its brightness shall unfold
What Jesus hath for mortals done,
While we with joy behold.

4 A new creation then shall rise
By the Almighty's hand,
And, though the old creation dies,
The new shall always stand.

HYMN 285. C. M. [#]
New Jerusalem descending.

1 Lo, what a glorious sight appears
To our believing eyes!

The earth and sea shall pass away,
And yonder rolling skies.

2 From heaven above, where God resides, That holy, happy place,

The New Jerusalem comes down,

Adorned with shining grace.
