B. H. Draper


YE Christian heralds, go proclaim

Salvation through Emmanuel’s Name;

To distant climes the tidings bear,

And plant the Rose of Sharon there.


God shield you with a wall of fire,

With flaming zeal your breasts inspire,

Bid raging winds their fury cease,

And hush the tempests into peace.


And when our labors all are o’er,

Then we shall meet to part no more;

Meet with the blood-bought throng to fall,

And crown our Jesus Lord of all.
