Chris Vs Kingdom and Judgment. 93
Great God, Whose universal sway The known and unknown worlds obey, Now give the kingdom to Thy Son, Extend His power, exalt His throne.
As rain on meadows newly mown, So shall He send His influence down; His grace on fainting souls distils Like heavenly dew on thirsty hills.
The heathen lands, that lie beneath The shade of overspreading death, Revive at His first dawning light, And deserts blossom at the sight.
The saints shall flourish in His days, Dress'd in the robes of joy and praise ; Peace, like a river, from His Throne Shall flow to nations yet unknown.
Isaac Watts. 1719.
From Greenland's icy mountains,
From India's coral strand, Where Afric's sunny fountains
Roll down their golden sand, From many an ancient river,
From many a palmy plain, They call us to deliver
Their land from error's chain.
