HYMN CXXXIX.

8.8.8.8

James Montgomery

The universal Church.--Isa. lxvi. 12, 23.

Thus saith the Lord, "My Church, to thee

Peace, like a river, I will send;

The Gentiles, in a stream, shall see

My mercy flowing without end.

The isles, that never heard my fame,

Nor knew the glory of my might,

They shall be taught to fear my name,

Call'd out of darkness into light.

And it shall come to pass, that vows

From sabbath unto sabbath-day,

From moon to moon, in mine own house,

All nations, tribes, and tongues shall pay."
