He himself appears thy Friend;
All thy foes shall flee before thee,

Here their boasts and triumphs end:
Great deliverance

The Messengers of God.

f" 1 C\ 0—ye messengers of God!

vT Like the beams of morning, fly; Take the wonder-working rod, Wave the banner cross on high. / 2 Where the towering minaret

Gleams along the morning skies,
"Wave it till the crescent set,
And the "Star of Jacob" rise.
3 Go to many a tropic isle,
In the bosom of the deep,
Where the skies for ever smile,

> And th' oppressed for ever weep. * p 4 O'er the negro's night of care

< Pour the living light of heaven;

— Chase away the fiend despair,—

Bid him hope to be forgiven.
. 5 Where the golden gates of day
Open on the palmy east,
Wide the bleeding cross display,—
Spread the gospel's richest feast.
6 Circumnavigate the ball,
Visit every soil and sea:
Preach the cross of Christ to all,—
Christ, whose love is full and free.

*J We lift our eyes to seek thy face;
To bleeding hearts thy love make known,

A world o'erwhelmed in guilt and tears,
Where deathless souls in ruin lie,
And no kind voice dispels their fears!

< Its conquests spread from shore to shore,

f Till suns and stars forget to shine,

And heaven with new-born rapture glow.
