From Greenland's Icy Mountains

Author: Reginald Heber Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #367 (1926) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Topics: A Missionary Service Lyrics: 1 From Greenland's icy mountain, 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. 2 What though the spicy breezes Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle; Though ev'ry prospect pleases, And only man is vile: In vain with lavish kindness The gifts of God are strown; The heathen, in his blindness Bows down to wood and stone. 3 Shall we, whose souls are lighted With wisdom from on high, Shall we to men benighted The lamp of life deny? Salvation, O salvation! The joyful sound proclaim, Till earth's remotest nation Has learned Messiah's Name. 4 Waft, waft, ye winds, His story, And you, ye waters, roll, Till, like a sea of glory, It spreads from pole to pole; Till o'er our ransomed nature The Lamb for sinners slain, Redeemer, King, Creator, In bliss returns to reign. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: MISSIONARY HYMN

Go Forth, Ye Heralds, in My Name

Author: James Maxwell Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #378 (1926) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: A Missionary Service Lyrics: 1 Go forth, ye heralds, in My Name, Sweetly the Gospel trumpet sound; The glorious jubilee proclaim, Where'er the human race is found. 2 The joyful news to all impart, And teach them where salvation lies; With care bind up the broken heart, And wipe the tears from weeping eyes. 3 Be wise as serpents where you go, But harmless as the peaceful dove; And let your heaven-taught conduct show Ye are commissioned from above. 4 Freely from Me ye have received, Freely, in love, to others give; Thus shall your doctrines be believed, And, by your labors, sinners live. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: WENN WIR IN HÖCHSTEN NÖTHEN SEIN

Speed Thy Servants, Saviour, Speed Them

Author: Thomas Kelly Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #373 (1926) Meter: 8.7.8.7.8.7 Topics: A Missionary Service Lyrics: 1 Speed Thy servants, Saviour, speed them, Ruler of the winds and waves, They were bound, but Thou hast freed them; Now they go to free the slaves. Be Thou with them, be Thou with them, 'Tis Thine arm alone that saves. 2 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, O be with them, Lead them safely by the hand. 3 When no fruit appears to cheer them, And they seem to toil in vain, Then in mercy, Lord, draw near them, Then their sinking hopes sustain. Thus supported, Thus supported, Let their zeal revive again. 4 In the midst of opposition Let them trust, O Lord, in Thee; When success attends their mission, Let Thy servants humbler be; Never leave them, Never leave them, Till Thy face in heaven they see: Amen.

Winter Reigns o'er Many a Region

Author: Leonhard Meisser Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #377 (1926) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Topics: A Missionary Service Lyrics: 1 Winter reigns o’er many a region, Many a seed-field fallow lies; When, O Lord, shall come the springtime, With its quick'ning energies? When shall this long night be ended? When the morning dawn appear? When shall drought give place to freshness? When these deserts bloom with cheer? 2 Lord, Thy Church is ever praying: Now her anxious yearnings hear; Speed the triumphs of Thy Kingdom; Spread its vict'ries far and near. Own the work, Thy grace attend it, Which we undertake for Thee; Let a holy love inflame us; Kindle zeal and fervency. 3 That Thy fields be rightly cultured, Send the laborers that we need, Men to light the heavy darkness, Sow the wastes with precious seed. Then send down the gentle showers, Make Thy gracious sunlight shine, That each field may joy with blessing, Bringing forth the fruits divine. 4 By the breezes of Thy Spirit, Fan all deadness into life; Bless the seeds to Thee upspringing, Keep each plant from blast and strife. And, ye toilers in this seeding, Know the promise God hath given: Glorious crowns await the faithful, And eternal gains in heaven. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: THEODORET

Thy healing be To every wounded conscience given, And let them also share Thy heaven. 4 O make the deaf to hear Thy Word, And teach the dumb to speak, dear Lord, Who dare not yet the faith avow, Though secretly they hold it now. 5 Shine on the darkened and the cold, Recall the wanderers to Thy fold, Unite all those who walk apart, Confirm the weak and doubting heart, 6 So they with us may evermore Such grace with wondering thanks adore, And endless praise to Thee be given By all Thy Church in earth and heaven. Amen. Scripture: John 8:12 Languages: English Tune Title: O JESU CHRIST, MEINS LEBENS LICHT
