" Thy Kingdom come?                  195
Baptize the nations far and nigh ;
The triumphs of Thy Cross record ; The name of Jesus glorify,
Till every kindred call Him Lord.
James Montgomery. 1825.
CLXXIX.
Speed Thy servants, Saviour, speed them !
Thou art Lord of winds and waves: They were bound, but Thou hast freed them ;
Now they go to free the slaves : Be Thou with them !
'Tis Thine arm alone that saves.
Friends and home and all forsaking, Lord ! they go, at Thy command;
As their stay Thy promise taking, While they traverse sea and land:
O be with them ! Lead them safely by the hand !
Speed them through the mighty ocean,
In the dark and stormy day, When the waves in wild commotion
Fill all others with dismay : Be Thou with them !
Drive their terrors far away.
When they reach the land of strangers,
And the prospect dark appears, Nothing seen but toils and dangers,
Nothing felt but doubts and fears ; Be Thou with them !
Hear their sighs, and count their tears.
O 2
