All nations then will see ;
In converts born to thee. 525

Put on thy robes of beauteous hue;
Bright with the beams of truth divine !
Wide as the heathen nations are.
All shall admire and love thee too. 526
H. M. Newbury. Darwell's. 1 0 ZION, tune thy voice,
And raise thy hands on high!
While rays divine
Cheerful in God | Stream all abroad.
2 He gilds thy mourning face
With beams which cannot fade:
He pours around thy head:
Reflect that sacred light;
Which makes thy darkness bright:
In worlds above,
And let thy excellence be known:
3 No more shall foes unclean invade,
And fill thy hallowed walls with dread;
Their victory and thy sorrows boast.
His hand thy ruin shall repair :
To guard thee in eternal peace. 528
Edyfield. Lincoln. 1 “GIVE us room, that we may dwell,”.
Zion's children cry aloud:
How they gather like a cloud!
Brighter from so dark a night:
Filled with wonder and delight.
God himself will be thy light:
Buried lies in endless night.
Lo! thy light from heaven is come!
Give thy sons and daughters room.. 529
88, 73 & 4. Greenville. Greeco. 1 YES! we trust the day is breaking ;
Joyful times are near at hand;
When he chooses,
To our hearts to hear, each day,
How the gospel wins its way;
Let thy people see thy hand;
Then shall idols
L. M. 530
Before thy face, dread King! we stand :
Has called thy people from afar.
The truth for which the martyrs bled ;
The thunder of thy praise to roll.
Our hopes revive < our courage raise
The single eye-the faithful heart!
Recall the wandering spirits home:
To spread the spacious earth around. 531
Alfreton. Effingham 1 BEHOLD the heathen waits to know
The joy the gospel will bestow;
The freedom Jesus has to give.
In this blest labor share a part ;
To aid the triumphs of our King.
That we have seen these latter days ;
Where Satan long hath held his throne.
Sweet incense to his name shall rise ;
And slave, and freeman-Greek, and Jew,
By sovereign grace be formed anew. 532

Sicilian Hymn. 1 WITH my substance I will honor
My Redeemer and my Lord;
All were nothing to his word.

Gladly join to spread his fame.

To my Lord my all I owe.
Praise him, all ye hosts above;
Missionary Hymn 533
Departure of Missionaries.
And, as thy billows flow,
To every land below.
Safe to the destined shore;
And death's black shade, no more.
Who holdest in thine arm
Protect them from all harm!
Wherever they may be,
Still let them be with thee!
His sovereign voice obey;
And peace attend your way!
St. Thomas. Pentonville
2 The Master whom you serve
Will needful strength bestow;
With sacred courage-go.
Go, tell his matchless grace;
To Adam's guilty race.
And hell in vain oppose ;.
In spite of all his foes.
eenville 1 MEN of God,
Bear the tidings
Tidings of the Saviour's worth. 2 Of his gospel not ashamed
'Tis the power of God to save; Go where Christ was never named, Publish freedom to the slave :
Freedom Zion's children have.
Jesus will his own defend;
He is with you
He will guide you to the end. 536
L. M. Brewer. Effingham.
And plant the rose of Sharon there.
With holy zeal your hearts inspire;
And calm the savage breast to peace.
Then shall we meet to part no more ;
