2 See? from ev’ry quarter flowing,
Joyful crowds assemble round:
Love, in ev'ry heart is glowing:
Praise is heard in ev'ry sound;
While Jehovah shews his face,
Glory fills the sacred place.
3 Weapons meant for mutual slaughter
Now are instruments of peace;
They who taste the living water,
Learn from war and strife to cease:
Jesus reigns—the earth is still—
All the nations do his will.
1. ARK! the song of Jubilee,
Loud as mighty thunders roar,
Or the fulness of the sea,
When it breaks upon the shore :-
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 depth unto the skies,
Wakes above, beneath, around,
All creation's harmonies:—
See Jehovah's banner furl’d,
Sheath'd his sword: he speaks: 'tis done:
And the kingdoms of this world -
Are the kingdoms of his Son.
MISSIONARY MEETINGs. 488.
3 He shall reign from pole to pole
With illimitable sway:
He shall reign, when like a scroll,
Yonder heav'ns have pass'd away:—
Then the end;—beneath his rod,
Man's last enemy shall fall;
IIallelujah! Christ in God,
God in Christ, is all in all.

For Missionary Associations.
1 A.o. at thy great command,
Before thy face, dread King, we stand;
The voice that marshall'd ev'ry star,
Has call'd thy people from afar.
2 We meet, thro' distant lands to spread
The truth for which the martyrs bled;
Along the line—to either pole—
The thunder of thy praise to roll.
3 First, bow our hearts beneath thy sway:
Then give thy growing empire way,
O'er wastes of sin–o'er fields of blood-
Till all mankind shall be subdu’d.
Our counsels aid—and Oh! impart
The single eye—the faithful heart!
5 Forth with thy chosen heralds come, Recal the wand'ring spirit home : . From Zion's mount send forth the sound To spread the spacious earth around.
I EHOLD th’ expected time draw near,
The shades disperse,the dawn appear;
Behold the wilderness assume
The beauteous tints of Eden's bloom.
2 The untaught heathen waits to know
The joy the gospel will bestow,
The exil'd captive, to receive
The freedom Jesus has to give.
3 Come, let us with a grateful heart
In the blest labor share a part;
Our pray'rs and off'rings gladly bring
To aid the triumphs of our King.
4 Invite the world to come and prove
A Saviour's condescending love;
And humbly fall before his feet,
Assur'd they shall acceptance meet.
2 Let each discordant thought be gone,
And love unite our hearts in one;
Let all we have and are combine,
To forward objects so divine.
HYMN 491. C. M. Doddridge.
I HE Lord on mortal worms looks down
From his celestial throne;
And, when the wicked swarm around,
He well discerns his own.
2 He sees the tender hearts that mourn
The scandals of the times,
And join their efforts to oppose
The wide-prevailing crimes.
3 Low to the social band he bows
His still attentive ear;
And, while his angels sing around,
Delights their voice to hear.
1 ROM 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 tho’ the spicy breezes
Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle,
Tho' ev'ry 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 P
Salvation : O Salvation'
The joyful sound proclaim,
Till earth's remotest nation
Has learn'd Messiah’s name.
4 Waft, waft, ye winds, his story,
And you, ye waters, roll, .
Till, like a sea of glory, -
It spreads from pole to pole;
Till o'er our ransom'd nature,
The Lamb for sinners slain,
Redeemer, King, Creator,
In bliss returns to reign.
