Meet-with the blood-bought throng to fall,
And crown our Jesus-Lord of all.

PM,

Brewer. Monson. 537

Subjection of the Nations to Christ prayed for,
1 SOON may the last glad song arise,

Through all the millions of the skies-
That song of triumph which records

That all the earth is now the Lord's!
2 Let thrones, and powers, and kingdoms be

Obedient, mighty God, to thee!
And over land, and stream, and main,

Now wave the sceptre of thy reign!
3 Oh let that glorious anthem swell;

Let host to host the triumph tell-
That not one rebel heart remains,

But over all the Saviour reigns ! 538

Missionary Hymn. 1 WHEN shall the voice of singing

Flow joyfully along ?
When hill and valley, ringing

With one triumphant song,
Proclaim the contest ended,

And him who once was slain,
Again to earth descended,

In righteousness to reign ?
2 Then from the craggy mountains

The sacred shout shall fly;
And shady vales and fountains

Shall echo the reply.
High tower and lowly dwelling

Shall send the chorus round,
All hallelujah swelling,

In one eternal sound! 539

Old Hundred. Gilead.
I NOW let the angel sound on high,

Let shouts be heard through all the sky;
Kings of the earth, with glad accord,

Give up your kingdoms to the Lord.
2 Almighty God, thy power assume,

Who wast, and art, and art to come;
Jesus, the Lamb, who once was slain,
Forever live-forever reign!

St. Thomas. Hudson 1 GREAT Heir of David's throne !

Thy royal power assume;
Come, reign in faithful hearts alone,

Thou blest Redeemer, come.
2 Set up thy throne of grace

In all the heathen's sight-
Thy kingdom of true holiness-

And order it aright.
3 Now, for thy promise' sake,

O'er earth exalted be:
The kingdom, power, and glory take,

Which all belong to thee.
4 In zeal for God and man,

Thy full salvation bring:
The universal Monarch reign,
The saints' eternal King.

Southfield. Eastburn. 541

Rejoicing in Christ's Reign.
1 NOW living waters flow

To cheer the humble soul;
From sea to sea the rivers go,

And spread from pole to pole.
2 Now righteousness shall spring,

And grow on earth again:
Jesus, Jehovah, be our King,

And o'er the nations reign.
3 Jesus shall rule alone,

The world shall hear his word;
By one blest name shall he be known

The Universal Lord. 542

L. M. Brewer. Duke Street. 1 HAIL to the Prince of life and peace,

Who holds the keys of death and hell;
The boundless world unseen is his,

And sovereign power becomes him well. P 2 In shame and suffering once he died ;

But now he lives forevermore :
Bow down, ye saints, around his seat,

And, all ye angel-bands, adore.
3 So live forever, glorious Lord,

To crush thy foes-and guard thy friends ;

While all thy chosen tribes rejoice,

That thy dominion never ends.
4 Worthy thy hand to hold the keys,

Guided by wisdom, and by love;
Worthy to rule o'er mortal life,

O'er worlds below-and worlds above.
5 Forever reign, victorious King!

Wide thro the earth thy name be known; And call my longing soul to sing

Sublimer anthems near thy throne. 543

L. M.

Mendon, Brewer. 1 YES-mighty Jesus! thou shalt reign,

Till all thy haughty foes submit;
Till hell, and all her trembling train,

Become the footstool of thy feet. 2 Then, ransomed souls shall bless thy power:

Thine arm shall full salvation bring :
Thy saints, in that illustrious hour,

Shall conquer, with their conquering King. 3 Then, ranged thy shining throne around,

Thy honors, Lord, will we proclaim; While heaven's transported realms resound

Thy glorious deeds and saving name. 544

Adullum. Lincoln 1 HARK!-the song of jubilee,

Loud-as mighty thunders roar;
Or the fullness of the sea,

When it breaks upon the shore-
2 See Jehovah's banners furled!

Sheathed his sword :-he speaks—’tis done!
Now the kingdoms of this world

Are the kingdom of his Son.
3 He shall reign from pole to pole

With supreme, unbounded sway:
He shall reign, when, like a scroll,

Yonder heavens have passed away!
4 Hallelujah! for the Lord,

God omnipotent shall reign:
Hallelujah!-let the word

Echo round the earth and main.

S. M. Paddington. Eastburn. 1 REJOICE! the Lord is King !

Your Lord and King adore ;,
Ye ransomed saints, give thanks and sing,

And triumph evermore!
2 The mighty Saviour reigns,

The God of truth and love;
When he himself had purged our stains,

He took his seat above.
3 His kingdom cannot fail ;

He rules o’er earth and heaven;
The sovereign keys of death and hell

Into his hands are given.
4 He sits at God's right hand,

Till all his foes submit,
And humbly bow to his command,

And fall beneath his feet.
5 Rejoice in glorious hope !

Jesus, the Judge, shall come,
And take his waiting servants up

To their eternal home. 546

Adullum. Lincoln. 1 WAKE the song of jubilee,

Let it echo o'er the sea !
Now is come the promised hour;

Jesus reigns with sovereign power!
2 All ye nations, join and sing,

Christ, of lords and kings is King!
Let it sound from shore to shore,

Jesus reigns forevermore !
3 Now the desert lands rejoice,

And the islands join their voice;
Yea, the whole creation sings,

1
Jesus is the King of kings!

Nature of Prayer.
1 PRAYER is the contrite sinner's voice,

Returning from his ways;
While angels

in their songs rejoice,
And cry, 'Behold, he prays.

S. M.

2 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath,

The Christian's native air;
His watch-word at the gates of death ;

He enters heaven with prayer.
3 Prayer is not made on earth alone-

The Holy Spirit pleads;
And Jesus, on th' eternal throne,

For simers intercedes.
Af 4 O thou by whom we come to God-

The Life, the Truth, the Way!

The path of prayer thyself hast trodLen Lord, teach us how to pray.

Little Marlboro'Hudson 548

Encouragement to Prayer.
1 AND shall not Jesus hear

His children when they cry?
Yes—though he may awhile forbear,

He'll help them from on high.
2 His nature, truth, and love,

Engage him on their side;
When they are grieved, his bowels move;

And can they be denied ?
3 Then let us earnest be,

And never faint in prayer:
He loves our importunity,

And makes our cause his care. 549

L. M.

Brewer. St. Paul's
1 SING to the Lord, who loud proclaims
His various and his saving names;
Oh may they not be heard alone,

But by our sure experience known.
2 Through every age his gracious ear

Is open to his servants' prayer;
Nor can one humble soul complain,

That he has sought his God in vain.
3 What unbelieving heart shall dare

In whispers to suggest a fear,
While still he owns his ancient name,

The same his power-his love the same; 4 To thee our souls in faith arise,

To thee we list expecting eyes;
We boldly through the desert tread,
For God will guard, where God shall lead.
