PO ET RY:
HYMN COMPOSED FOR A MISSIONARY MEETING,
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,
Shall we to men benighted
The Lamp of Life deny ?
Salvation ! oh, Salvation!
The joyful sound proclaim,
Till each remotest nation
Has learnt Messiah's name!
What tho' the spicy breezes
Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle,
And only Man is vile;
The gifts of God are strewn;
Bows down to wood and stone.
Waft, waft, ye winds, His story,
And yon, ye waters, roll,
It spreads from pole to pole;
The Lamb for sinners slain,
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.
Each tribe and kindred from afar
