From Greenland's Icy Mountains

Author: Reginald Heber Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #367 (1926) Meter: 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: 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: 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.

Saviour, Sprinkle Many Nations

Author: Arthur Cleveland Coxe Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #365 (1926) Meter: D Topics: A Missionary Service Lyrics: 1 Saviour, sprinkle many nations, Fruitful let Thy sorrows be; By Thy pains and consolations Draw the Gentiles unto Thee. Of Thy cross the wondrous story, Be it to the nations told; Let them see Thee in Thy glory, And Thy mercy manifold. 2 Far and wide, though all unknowing, Pants for Thee each mortal breast: Human tears for Thee are flowing, Human hearts in Thee would rest. Thirsting as for dews of even, As the new-mown grass for rain, Thee they seek, as God of heaven, Thee as Man, for sinners slain. 3 Saviour, lo, the isles are waiting, Stretched the hand, and strained the sight, For Thy Spirit, new-creating, Love's pure flame, and wisdom's light. Give the word, and of the preacher Speed the foot, and touch the tongue, Till on earth by every creature, Glory to the Lamb be sung. Amen.
