ZION'S INCREASE PRAYED FOR




How many years hath man been driven
Far off from happiness and heaven!
When wilt thou, gracious Lord, restore
Thy banished sons to roam no more.


For near six thousand years, thy foe
Hath triumphed over all below;
Save that a little flock is found,
With ravening wolves encompassed round


Shall not the Lamb, who once was slain,
An ample compensation gain;
And many happy millions more
To happiness and God restore.


From every nation—every tongue,
A remnant must to him belong;
Nor can there be too vile a race
To furnish trophies of his grace.


Exert that power which could subdue
The furious, slaughter-breathing Jew,
And make him in thy cause become
Victorious over Greece and Rome.


Now Lord, before thy servants go;
Let God himself the trumpet blow;
Hasten the gospel jubilee,
Which bids a captive world be free.
