And earth shall yield her full increase.-

The Gospel Banner,

I /" 1 "KTO^ ^e tnesPel banner,
li In every land, unfurled;
And be the shout,—" Hosanna!"

Re-echoed through the world ,
Till every isle and nation,

Till every tribe and tongue,
Receive the great salvation,

And join the happy throng.
What, though th' embattled legions

Of earth- and hell combine?
His arm, throughout their regions,

Shall soon resplendent shine: ; ff' Ride on, O Lord! victorious,

Immanuel, Prince of peace!
Thy triumph shall be glorious,--

Thy empire still increase.

The deserts learn thy praise,

The hills and valleys greeting,
The song responsive raise.
