4 Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,
Sing loud with solemn voice;
And British hearts rejoice. 5 He, the great Lord, the sovereignJudge,
That sits enthroned above, Wisely commands the worlds He made,
In justice and in love.
And yield a full increase;
With fruitfulness and peace.
His choicest favours here;
Shall see, adore, and fear.

124, 8. 1 ORD, while for all mankind we pray,
Of every clime and coast,
The land we love the most.
And here our kindred dwell:
Another land so well?
With peace our borders bless;
Our fields with plenteousness. 4 Unite us in the sacred love
of knowledge, truth, and Thee; And let our hills and valleys shout
The songs of liberty.
Upon our Sabbaths smile;
And bless our native isle.
Our country we commend;

for joy.-Ps. 67, 4.
To spread Thy glorious light:
That all the earth Thy truth may know. 2 O bring the nations near,
That they may sing Thy praise, Let all the people hear, And learn thy righteous ways; Reign, mighty God, assert Thy cause,
And govern by Thy righteous laws. 3 Put forth Thy glorious power,
The nations then will see,
In converts born to Thee;
bless, And earth will teem with fruitfulness.

Look, my soul, be still, and gaze: All the promises do travail With a glorious day of grace:
Let the rude barbarian see
Let the Gospel

On their grossest darkness dawn,
O'er the borders

Are all Thy works, and words, and
Thanksgiving and eternal praise. 2 As children of Thy gracious care,
We veil the eye, we bend the knee;
Father and God! we come to Thee.
The sighing of the helpless slave;
Not shortened that it could not save. 4 Speed on Thy work, Lord God of hosts!
And when the bondman's chain is riven,
The anthem of the free to heaven 5 Oh, not to those whom Thou hast led,
As with Thy cloud and fire before.
762 Bogst not against the branches.
Enthroned once on high,
Thou heaven below the sky;
Now brought to bondage with thy sons,
A curse and grief to see,
Our tears shall flow for thee. 2 O hadst thou known thy day of grace,
And flocked beneath the wing of Him who called thee lovingly,
Thine own anointed King:
Gone up thy pomp to see,
And all thy sons been free. 3 "And who art thou that mournest me?"
Jerusalem may say.
May prove a castaway!
My place is given to thee;
Of thy wild olive tree!
Our time oť mercy spent,
And strange their punishment:
But, sinner, warned be;
May send His wrath on thee!
Thy noon is in its prime;
In this accepted time.
A lesson prove to thee,
Thy home for ever be."

2 O God of Israel, view their race;
Back to Thy fold the wanderers bring: Teach them to seek Thy slighted grace,
To hail in Christ their promised King. 3 The veil of darkness rend in twain, Which hides their Shiloh's glorious
light: The severed olive-branch again Back to its parent stock unite. 4 While Judah views his birthright gone,
With contrite shame his bosom move,

they have pierced. --Zech, 12, 10. 1 HILDREN of Zion, know your king,
Your own Messiah hail; Hosanna in His temple sing,
For He hath rent the veil. 2 Himself the sacrifice for sin,
As your High Priest He died, With His own blood He entered in,
Behold Him crucified!
High in the holiest place;
Then rise to see His face. 4 So shall your hearts within you burn,
While guided by His voice;
And in your God rejoice.
Let every tongue confess;
The Lord your Righteousness.
