By the Rev. Reginald Heber. From Greenland's icy mountains,

Shall we, whose souls are lighted From India's coral strand,

With wisdom from on high,
Where Afric's sunny fountains

Shall we to men benighted
Roll down their golden sand;

The Lamp of Life deny ?
From many an ancient river,

Salvation ! oh, Salvation!
From many a palmy plain;

The joyful sound proclaim,
They call us to deliver

Till each remotest nation
Their land from Error's chain.

Has learnt Messiah's name!

What tho' the spicy breezes

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle,
Tho' every prospect pleases,

And only Man is vile;
In vain with lavish kindness

The gifts of God are strewn;
The Heathen, in his blindness,

Bows down to wood and stone.

Waft, waft, ye winds, His story,

And yon, ye waters, roll,
Till, like a sea of glory,

It spreads from pole to pole;
Till o'er our ransomed nature

The Lamb for sinners slain,
Redeemer, King, Creator,

In bliss returns to reign.

A MISSIONARY HYMN. WHILE gazing upward, from afar

Oh, soon shall that resplendent ray The dawning beam we now descry,

Through distant climes diffuse its light, We hail the rise of Judah's star,

Shall turn their evening into day, Refulgent as it gleams on high.

And change their dimness into sight.
Where'er the foot of man hath trod,

Each tribe and kindred from afar
Shall rend their garments, bless their God,
And hail the rise of Judah's star.
