Hymns For Christian Devotion by J.G. Adams

733. -- Missionary Hymn.

733. 7s. & 6s. M. Heber. Missionary Hymn.

1 From Greenland's icy mountains,
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 every 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
By wisdom from on high,
Shall we to men benighted
The lamp of life deny?
Salvation! O, salvation!
The joyful sound proclaim,
Till each remotest nation
Has learnt Messiah's name.
