4 Saw ye not the cloud arise,
Little as a human hand ?
Hangs o'er all the thirsty land :
Drops already from above;
All the Spirit of His Love!
Bruce. 1768. DEHOLD! the Mountain of the Lord
D In latter days shall rise
On mountain tops, above the hills,
All tribes and tongues shall flow;
And to His house we'll go.
Shall lighten every land;
Shall all the world command.
Or mar the peaceful years ;
To pruning hooks their spears.
Their millions slain deplore;
And study war no more. 6 Come, then ! O come, from every land, i
To worship at His shrine ;
With holy beauties shine. 947.
4-78. MARSDEN. (1836.) No, ye messengers of God; U Like the beams of morning fly!
Take the wonder-working rod;
Lift the Saviour's cross on high.
In the bosom of the deep,
And the opprest for ever weep.
Pour the living light of heaven :
Bid him hope to be forgiven.
Open on the gorgeous East,
Spread the gospel's richest feast.
Visit every soil and sea;
Be thine to shed celestial light. 2 Go, to the hungry food impart,
To paths of peace the wanderer guide;
Where streams of living water glide. 3 On barren rock and desert isle,
Go, bid the Rose of Sharon bloom;
Bright with the dews of morning's womb. 4 From north to south, from east to west,
Messiah yet shall reign supreme; His Name, by every tongue confest ;
His praise, the universal theme. 5 Then faint not in the day of toil,
When harvest waits the reaper's hand :
To dovad-cast waters sous stocks les gTOW,
Go, gather in the glorious spoil,
And joyous in His presence stand. 6 Thy love a rich reward shall find
From Him who sits enthroned on high ; For they who turn the erring mind
Shall shine like stars above the sky. 949
S.M. MONTGOMERY. 1835.
D . At eve hold not thy hand;
Broad-cast it o'er the land.
The highway furrows stock,
Scatter it on the rock.
Expect not here, nor there;
In verdure, beauty, strength,
And the full corn at length.
Cold, heat, and moist, and dry,
For garners in the sky.
The day of God is come,
And heaven cry “Harvest home !" 950.
78 D. MONTGOMERY. 1819. TARK! the song of Jubilee ;
n Loud as mighty thunders roar,
Hallelujah! for the Lord,
God Omnipotent, shall reign ; Hallelujah ! let the word
Echo round the earth and main. 2 Hallelujah !-hark! the sound,
From the depths unto the skies, Wakes above, beneath, around,
All creation's harmonies : See Jehovah's banners furled,
Sheath'd His sword: He speaks—'tis done, And the kingdoms of this world
Are the kingdoms of His Son. . 3 He shall reign from pole to pole
With illimitable sway ;
Yonder heavens have passed away :
Man's last enemy shall fall;
God in Christ, is all in all.
C.M. . C. WESLEY. 1747. NOD of all consolation, take u The glory of Thy grace ! Thy gifts to Thee we render back
In ceaseless songs of praise.
In singleness of heart;
And in Thy name we part.
Our minds continue one ; And, each to each, in Jesus joined, i
We hand in hand go on. 4 Subsists as in us all one soul,
No power can make us twain ;
And mountains rise, and oceans roll,
To sever us, in vain.
And intimately nigh,
We each to other fly.
In heavenly places sit;
The moon beneath our feet.
Our Life shall soon appear,
In all His members here.
In a mean house of clay ;
And keep it to that day.
And He shall keep them still ;
With Him on Sion's hill ! 10 Him eye to eye we there shall see ; .
Our face like His shall shine :
When saints and angels join ! 11 O what a joyful meeting there !
In robes of white arrayed,
. And crowns upon our head. 12 Then let us lawfully contend,
And fight our passage through ;
And keep the prize in view. 13 Then let us hasten to the Day,
When all shall be brought home;
O Jesus, quickly come !
