From north and south and east and west

1.FROM north and south and east and west,
When shall the peoples, long unblest,
All find their everlasting rest,
O Christ, in Thee?

2. When shall the climes of ageless
snow Be with the Gospel light aglow,
And all men their Redeemer know,
O Christ, in Thee?

3.When on each southern balmy coast,
Shall ransomed men, In countless host,
Rise, heart and voice,to make sweet boast,
O Christ, in Thee?

4.O when in all the orient lands,
From cities white and flaming sands,
Shall men lift dedicated hands,
O Christ, to Thee?

5.O when shall heathen darkness roll
Away In light, from pole to pole,
And endless day by every soul
Be found in Thee?

6. Bring,Lord,thelong-predictedhour,
The ages' diadem and flower,
When all shall find their refuge-tower
And home in Thee.
