HYMN 279. S. M. [#]
Scripture a Guide.
1 How choice the book divine,
2 It cheers our drooping hearts
TRIUMPH OF CHRISTIANITY.
HYMN 280. C. M. [#]
Triumph of Christianity.
1 O'ER mountain tops, the mount of God
Up to this mountain of their God,
3 The beams that shine from Zion's hill
The King who reigns in Salem's towers
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,
HYMN 281. H. M. [# or b]
1 BLOW ye the trumpet, blow
2 Behold the Son of God,
3 The gospel trumpet hear,
The news of pardoning grace;
Ye happy souls, draw near;
The Father's love displayed;
Ye mourning souls, be glad : The year of jubilee is come; Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
HYMN 282. P. M. [#]
1 AWAY with our sorrow and fear; We soon shall recover our home; The city of saints shall appear,
The day of eternity come :
The palace of angels and God. 2 By faith we already behold
That lovely Jerusalem here;
As crystal her buildings are clear;
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,
And bright in effulgence divine!
HYMN 283. C. M. [#]
1 BEHOLD, on Zion's heavenly shore,
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
4 Hunger and thirst they know no more,
5 God all their tears shall wipe away,
C. M. [#]
1 WHEN will the eyelids of that morn
When all creation shall be born,
2 When will the Sun of Righteousness,
The numerous sons of Adam bless
3 The promised day will surely come;
4 A new creation then shall rise
HYMN 285. C. M. [#]
1 Lo, what a glorious sight appears
The earth and sea shall pass away,
2 From heaven above, where God resides, That holy, happy place,
The New Jerusalem comes down,
Adorned with shining grace.
