2 Christ for the world we sing ;
The world to Christ we bring,

With fervent prayer ;
The wayward and the lost,
By restless passion tossed,
Redeemed, at countless cost,

From dark despair.
3 Christ for the world we sing ;
The world to Christ we bring,

With one accord ;
With us the work to share,
With us reproach to dare,
With us the cross to bear,

For Christ our Lord.
4 Christ for the world we sing ;
The world to Christ we bring,

With joyful song ,
The new-born souls, whose days,
Reclaimed from error's ways,
Inspired with hope and praise,

To Christ belong.

S. Walcott.

7s, 6s. 81. THE Homeland ! O the Homeland !

The land of souls freeborn !
No gloomy night is known there,

But aye the fadeless morn :
I'm sighing for that Country,

My heart is aching here ;
There is no pain in the Homeland

To which I'm drawing near. 2 My Lord is in the Homeland,

With angels bright and fair ;
No sinful thing nor evil,

Can ever enter there ;

The music of the ransomed

Is ringing in my ears,
And when I think of the Homeland,

My eyes are wet with tears.
3 For loved ones in the Homeland

Are waiting me to come
Where neither death nor sorrow

Invade their holy home :
O dear, dear native Country!

O rest and peace above !
Christ bring us all to the Homeland
Of His eternal love.
