3 O son of righteousness unfould
Thy powerful beams and there display
O may my soul by faith behold
Those mansions of eternal days
 
4 Where saints behold thy smiling face
With reverance thy great name adore
Filled with the fullness of thy grace
Upheld by thy <​thine​> almighty power
 
5 Send down thy cheering beams to us
Whilst on this earthly globe we dwell
O free our souls from evry curse
Dispell the glooms of death and hell
 
6 O give us some foretastes of heaven
To bear our sinking spirits up
Send down thy grace like holy leaven
To cleans[e] the whole depraved lump
 
Unity & Love
1 Hail thou glorious king of Salem
Through the world in triumph ride
Evry nation bid the[e] welcon [welcome]
And thy peace like rivers glide
None have need of to teach his neighbour
Him request to know the Lord
Gracious God all nations favour
With thy spirite [spirit] and thy word
 
2 Bring the time to favour
When the saints on earth shall reign
With there glorious Lord and saviour
Free from Satans slavish chain
Lord: thy glorious kingdom gether
Reign ore [o’er] evry land and tongue
All be filled with peace and pleasure
And through earth thy praise be sung
 
3 May all party tenets vanish
A pure language all possess
Lord all evils from us banish
Cloth[e] our souls with righteousness
Gracious God send down thy spirit
Light bestow on every one
And all toungs and tribes interpet
Life through thine eternal son
 
4 Hasten Lord the restoration
Banish Sorrow evermore
May each kindred tongue and nati[on]
Bow and thy great mame [name] addore
Gracious God: thou great Creator
Thine eternal scepter sway
Gather through the mediator
Evry soul that gone astray
 
5 When all souls are Joined in union
Feast on streams of love divine
With their saviour hold communion
All the glory Lord be thine
Then will all things bow before the[e]
And thy sacred name addore
Unto the[e] ascribe the glory
Power and kingdom evermore [p. [2]]
