knowest: Again he said unto me, Prophe | sy up on:
these | bones. And as I prophesied, there was a noise,
and be holda | shaking: And the bones came together | bone • to
hi's bone. And when I be held : Lo, the sinews and the flesh • came | up •
on them. And the skin covered them .a | bove: But there was no · breath | i'n | them. Then said he un • to me : Prophesy un to the I wi'nd / prophesy. So I prophesied as he commanded | me: And ihe breath came in to them and •

Ezek. xxxvii. 3–10.
230. The Place is Holy Ground. (7’s.)
SERVANTS of the Lord most high,
In his house, though none may see,
SPREADING THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST.
231. Bp. Heber's Missionary Hymn. (7.6.)
From Greenland's icy mountains,
From India's coral strand,
Roll down their golden sand ;
From many a palmy plain,
Their land from error's chain !
Blow soft o'er Java's isle,
And only man is vile :
In vain with lavish kindness
The gifts of God are strewn,
Bows down to wood and stone !
With wisdom from on high,
The lamp of life deny ?
The joyful sound proclaim,
Has learned Messiah's name !
232. The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
THE earth shall be full of the knowledge of
the Lord, As the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of
Jesse, Which shall stand for an ensign of the
people; To it shall the Gentiles seek : And his rest shall be glorious.—Isa. xi. 9. The harvest truly is plenteous, but the la
bourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, That He will send forth labourers into his harvest.
This Gospelof the kingdom shall be preached
in all the world For a witness unto all nations ; And then shall the end come.
Matt. ix. 37 ; xxiv. 13.
233. The Little Missionary Maiden. (7.6.) You've oft read in the Bible,
In God's most holy Word,
The leprous Syrian lord.
Well knew Elisha's name;
She told the prophet's fame.
And bathed in Jordan's wave;
'Twas God alone could save.
His leprosy that day ;
And thankful went his way.
234. The Dark Places of the Earth. (C. M.) BLESSED be God, who cast my lot
Within this Christian land ;
Nor own his gracious hand.
How many a child, not near so old,
Is taught to bend its knee
Which cannot hear nor see !
In blood and pangs delight;
Full in their mothers' sight.
And holy, just, and true ;
Am I more godly too ?
235. God hath not cast off Israel. (8. m.)
To bless thy chosen race,
In mercy, Lord, incline ;
On Israel's tribes to shine.
The God of Israel's name ;
His honour and his fame.
For God o'er all doth reign;
Shall bless us once again.
