HYMN 179.
The race that long in darkness pined,

Have seen a glorious light;

i

The ])eople dwell ia day, who dwelt

Iu death's surrounding night.

In death's surrounding night.
To hnil t!iy rise , thou better Sun ,
The gathering nations come,
Juyou.s, as wlien the reapers bear
The harvest treasures home.
To us a cliild of hope is born;
To us a'Son is given;
Him shall the tribes of earth obey,
Him all the hosts of heaven.
His name sliall be the Prince of Peace,
For evermore adored ,
Tlie Wonderful, tlie Counsellor,
The Great and Mighty Lonl.
His power increasing still shall spread,
His reign no end shall know;
Justice shall guard his throne above,
And peace abound below.
