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., -1 SPIRIT of power and might, behold

N 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 deadlý 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. [*]
1 W HO, but thou, almighty Spirit,

V 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.
si SEND forth thy word, and let it fly,

N Armed with thy Spirit's power;
Ten thousands shall confess its sway,

And bless the saving hour!

The barren waste shall rise :
With sudden green and fruits arrayed .

A blooming paradise.

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.

Unnumbered myriads cry!
Amen! with joy divine, let heaven's

Unnumbered choirs reply.

Restoration and Glory of the Church. g1 n N the mountain's top appearing,

Lo! the sacred herald stands;
Welcome news to Zion bearing,
Zion long in hostile lands.

Drooping captive !-
God himself will loose thy bands.

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

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.

The Lord's appointed day.

And send thy heralds forth :
Say to the south, “ Give up thy charge,

And keep not back, 0 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. Montgomery.

Spread of the Gospel.
1 VES! we trust the day is breaking;

1 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 :

Let the gospel be victorious,
Through the world in every land;

Then shall idols
Perish, Lord-at thy command.

datthy.command. Kelly. HYMN 388. H. M. Darwell's. [*] 10 ZION, tune thy voice,

U 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. Doddridge. HYMN 389.7&.6. Romaine. [*] 0 1 ITAIL to the Lord's anointed!

L Great David's greater son ;
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 succor 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 yows 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:

He speaks---tis done And the kingdoms of this world Are the kingdom of his Son.
