Hymn 250
1. Ye wond'ring nations, now give ear
Unto the angel's cry,
For lo! from heaven he has appeared,
To bring salvation nigh.

2. He's brought the ancient records forth,
Unloosed the mighty seal,
Its glory now shall fill the earth,
And wondrous things reveal.

3. The things of worth in ages gone
From slumber it unfolds,
And things to come, now rolling on,
The wise may now behold.

4. Its opening wonders burst to view,
All glorious and divine,
Point out the path that men pursue,
Down to the end of time.

5. The meek and humble shall rejoice,
The wise shall understand,
All Israel now shall know his voice,
And gather to their land.
