And earth’s remotest parts abound,
With joys of everlasting sound.
 
7 Assyria’s captives, long since lost,
In splendor come a num’rous host;
Egyptia’s waters fill’d with fear,
Their power feel and disappear.
 
8 Yes, Abra’m’s children now shall be
Like sand in number by the sea;
While kindreds, tongues, and nations all,
Combine, to make the numbers full.
 
9 The dawning of that day has come,
See! Abra’m’s sons are gath’ring home,
And daughters too, with joyful lays,
Are hastening here to join in praise!
 
10 O God, our Father, and our King,
Prepare our voices and our theme;
Let all our pow’rs in one combine,
To sing thy praise in songs divine.
 
Hymn 34 • There is a land the Lord will bless
HYMN 34 C. M.
 
1 There is a land the Lord will bless,
Where all the saints shall come;
There is a day for righteousness,
When Israel gathers home.
