Rev. 11:6.

S. F. Smith.

Onward speed thy conquering flight,

Angel, onward speed!

Cast abroad thy radiant light,

Bid the shades recede;

Tread the idols in the dust,

Heathen fanes destroy;

Spread the gospel’s love and trust,

Spread the gospel’s joy.

2 Onward speed thy conquering flight,

Angel, onward haste;

Quickly on each mountain hight

Be thy standard placed;

Let thy blissful tidings float

Far o’er vale and hill,

Till the sweetly-echoing note

Every bosom thrill.

3 Onward speed thy conquering flight,

Angel, onward fly!

Long has been the reign of night;

Bring the morning nigh:

Unto thee earth’s sufferers lift

Their imploring wail;

Bear them heavén’s holy gift,

Ere their courage fail.

4 Onward speed thy conquering flight,

Angel, onward speed!

Morning bursts upon our sight,

Lo! the time decreed:

771

Now the Lord his kingdom takes,

Thrones and empires fall;

Now the joyous song awakes,

“God is All in All!”
