THE WORLD-WIDE GOSPEL

Psalm cxiii


PRAISE ye the Lord. Praise, ye servants of the Lord.
Praise the name of the Lord. Blessed be the name of the Lord
From this time forth and for evermore.
From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
Who is like unto the Lord our God, that hath his seat on high,
That humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven and in the earth?
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust,
And lifteth up the needy from the dunghill; that he may set him with princes.
Even with the princes of his people.

Isaiah ii


AND it shall come to pass in the latter days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
And many peoples shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord;
And he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths:
And he will judge between the nations, and will decide concerning many peoples;
And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks;
Nations shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war any more.

Psalm cxxii


OH praise the Lord, all ye nations;
Laud him, all ye peoples.
For his lovingkindness is great toward us;
And the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.
