310. L. M. Anonymous. Gospel Freedom Universal.
1 We long to see that happy time,
That long-expected, blissful day,
When men of every name and clime
The glorious gospel shall obey.
2 The word of God shall firm abide,
Though earth and hell should dare oppose;
The stone cut from the mountain's side,
To universal empire grows.
3 Afric's emancipated sons
Shall shout to Asia's rapt'rous song,
Europe, with her unnumbered tongues,
And western climes the strain prolong.
4 From east to west, from north to south,
Immanuel's kingdom shall extend,
And every man, in every face,
Shall meet a brother and a friend.
