TEMPERANCE REFORM.                                37
4  A living sword its pride doth wound, Through its cleft boughs the sunbeams shine, Its blasted blossoms strew the ground, Give glory to an arm divine!
5  And still Jehovah's aid implore,
Till from each island of the sea,
And from far earth's remotest shore
He root that deadly Upas-tree.
L- H. S
45                        8s. 7s. & 4s.
1    ROUND the temp'rance standard rally, All the friends of human kind ; Snatch the devotees of folly,
Wretched, perishing and blind,
Loudly tell them How they comfort now may find.
2  Bear the blissful tidings onwards,
Bear them all the world around ; Let the myriads thronging downwards,
Hear the sweet and blissful sound,
And obeying In the paths of peace be found.
3  Plant the temp'rance standard firmly,
Round it live, and round it die ; Young and old, defend it sternly,
Till we gain the victory.
And all nations Hail the happy Jubilee.
4  Now unto the Lamb for ever,
Fountain of all light and love ; Let the glory now and ever,
Be ascribed to Him above,
Whose compassion Did the friends of temp'rance move.
