2. Shall we, whose souls are lighted

With wisdom from on high, Shall we to men benighted

The lamp of light deny ? Salvation ! O salvation !

The joyful sound proclaiin, "Till each remotest nation

Has learn’d Messiah's nanie. 3 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.

Conversion of the Jews.'

HYMN XXXVI. L. M. 1 GREAT God of Abraham! hear our pray'í;

Let Abraham's seed thy mercy share: Oh! may they now at length return,

And look on him they pierc'd, and mourn. 2 Remember Jacob's flock of old: .

Bring home the warderers to thy fold : Remember too thy promis'd word, “ Israel at last shall seek the Lord."

3 Tho' outcasts still, estrang'd from Thee,

Cut off from their own olive-tree, Why should they longer such remain ?

For Thou canst graft them in again. 4 Lord, put thy law within their hearts,

And write it in their inward parts; The veil of darkness rend in two, Which hides Messiah from their view. 5 Oh! haste the day, foretold so long,

When Jew and Greek, (a glorious throng) - One houseshall seek, one pray'r shall pour,

And one Redeemer shall adore.

education. HYMN XXXVII. C. M. 1 The Lord's command is wise and good,

That we our offspring train
To walk betimes the heavenly road,

That they may there remain,
2 But ah! what nurnbers ev'ry where

In paths of misery go; Destroy'd for want of knowledge here,

A prey to ev'ry foe. 3 O pity then the friendless poor,

Who err from wisdom's way; And open wide her sacred door

To all, that go astray.

4 Give them access to Jesu's word,

Where they his ways may learn,
The means to seek and know the Lord,

If haply they may turn.
