2 To this the joyful nations round,

All tribes and tongues shall flow;
Up to the hill of God, they'll say,

And to his house we'll go.
3 The beam that shines from Sion hill

Shall lighten every land;
The King who reigns in Salem's tow'rs

Shall all the world command.
4 Among the nations he shall judge ;

His judgments truth shall guide;
His sceptre shall protect the just,

And quell the sinner's pride.
5 No strife shall rage, nor hostile feuds

Disturb those peaceful years ;
To ploughshares men shall beat their

swords,

To pruning-hooks their spears.
6 No longer hosts encount’ring hosts

Shall crowds of slain deplore:
They hang the trumpet in the hall,

And study war no more.
7 Come then, O house of Jacob! come

To worship at his shrine;
And, walking in the light of God,

With holy beauties shine.

Let all the nations know,

To earth's remotest bound,
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
2 Extol the Lamb of God,

The great atoning Lamb!
Redemption by his blood,

Throughout the world proclaim:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
3 Ye who have sold for nought

Your heritage above,
Shall have it back unbought,
The gift of Jesus' love:

of jubilee is come; Return, ye ransomed sinners, home. 4 Ye slaves of sin and hell,

Your liberty receive,
And safe in Jesus dwell,

And blest in Jesus live;
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
5 The gospel trumpet hear,

The news of heavenly grace;
Ye happy souls, draw near,

Behold your Saviour's face:
The
year

of jubilee is come; Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

CHRISTIAN HELP IMPLORED.

7.6. Missionary Hymn-Greenland-Bradford. 1 From Greenland's icy mountains,

From India's coral strand,
Where Afric's sunny fountains

Roll down their golden sand;
From many an ancient river,

From many a palmy plain,
They call us to deliver

Their land from error's chain. 2 What though the spicy breezes

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle;
Though every prospect pleases,

And only man is vile?
In vain with lavish kindness,

The gifts of God are strown;
The heathen, in his blindness,

Bows down to wood and stone.
3 Shall we, whose souls are lighted

With wisdom from on high,
Shall we to men benighted

The lamp of life deny?
Salvation! oh, salvation !

The joyful sound proclaim,
Till each remotest nation

Has learned Messiah's name.

Let all the nations know,

To earth's remotest bound,
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
2 Extol the Lamb of God,

The great atoning Lamb!
Redemption by his blood,

Throughout the world proclaim:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
3 Ye who have sold for nought

Your heritage above,
Shall have it back unbought,
The gift of Jesus' love:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
4 Ye slaves of sin and hell,

Your liberty receive,
And safe in Jesus dwell,

And blest in Jesus live;
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.
5 The gospel trumpet hear,

The news of heavenly grace;
Ye happy souls, draw near,

Behold your Saviour's face:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

5 In every exigence appear,

Their very present aid;
Preserve from that which most they fear-

Thy cause by them betrayed. 6 Yet who is equal to the strife,

So arduous and so long?
Their strength be thou, O Lord, in life,

And thou in death, their song.

THE WAITING CHURCH. & chorus. Waterbrook and Swabia (repeating last half

of tune for the chorus). 1 The church has waited long

Her absent Lord to see;
And still in loneliness she waits,
A friendless stranger she.

age
has

gone,
Sun after sun has set,
And still, in weeds of widowhood,
She weeps a mourner yet.

Come then, Lord Jesus, come! 2 Saint after saint on earth

Has lived, and loved, and died,
And as they left us one by one,

We laid them side by side;
We laid them down to sleep,

But not in hope forlorn;
