Proclaim to every people, tongue and nation

That God, in Whom they live and move is Love:
Tell how He stooped to save His lost creation,

And died on earth that man might live above.

O Zion, Haste, Thy Mission High Fulfilling

3
Give of thy sons to bear the message glorious;

Give of thy wealth to speed them on their way,
Pour out thy soul for them in prayer victorious;
And all thou spendest Jesus will repay.

4
He comes again-, Sion, ere thou meet Him,

Make known to every heart His saving grace;
Let none whom He hath ransomed fail to greet Him,
Through thy neglect, unfit to see His face.

Publish glad tidings; tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus, redemption and release. Amen.

1. Through midnight gloom from Ma - ce-don, The cry of myriads as

of one,

[merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors][ocr errors]

The soul's ex-ceed-ing bit- ter cry, “Come o'er and help us, or we die!” A-men.

2

How mournfully it echoes on!
For half the earth is Macedon;
These brethren to their brethren call,
And by the Love which loved them all,

And by the whole world's Life they cry, “Oye that live, behold we die!”

4 Yet with that cry from Macedon The very car of Christ rolls on; “I come; who would abide My day

In yonder wilds prepare My way; My voice is crying in their cry; Help ye the dying, lest ye die.”

3 By other sounds the world is won Than that which wails from Macedon; The roar of gain is round it rolled, Or men unto themselves are sold,

And cannot list the alien cry, “O hear and help us, lest we die!”

5 Jesus, for men of Man the Son, Yea, Thine the cry from Macedon; O by the kingdom and the power And glory of Thine Advent hour, Wake heart and will to hear their cry; Help us to help them, lest we die! Amen.
