MISSIONS
582
2 That banner, brighter than the star            Go to the conquest of all lands;
That leads the train of night,                     All must be His at length.
Shines on their march, and guides from far 5 o fear not, faint not, halt not now;
His servants to the fight,
3  Ye armies of the living God, I His sacramental host, Where hallowed footstep never trod,
Take your appointed post.
Though few and small and weak your band
Strong in your Captain's strength,
Quit you like men, be strong; To Christ shall every nation bow, And sing with you this song: 6 "Uplifted are the gates of brass; The bars of iron yield;.. . Behold the King of Glory pass! The cross hath won the field."
James Montgomery, 1843
583
2  Thou Prince of Life, arise,
Nor let Thy glory cease, Far spread the conquests of Thy grace, And bless the earth with peace.
3  Thou Holy Ghost, arise,
Expand Thy quickening wing,
And o'er a dark and ruined world Let light and order spring. 4 All on the earth, arise,
To God the Saviour sing; From shore to shore, from earth to heaven, Let echoing anthems ring.
Anon., 1800: enlarged in Wardlaw's Selection, 1803
