James Montgomery, in the Sheffield Iris, April 20, 1824.

The Heathen Perish anonymous, in Church Pastorals, edited by Nehemiah Adams (Boston, Massachusetts: Ticknor & Fields, 1864), page 260 (🔊 pdf nwc).

The heathen perish; day by day
Thousands on thousands pass away!
O Christians! to their rescue fly,
Preach Jesus to them ere they die.

Wealth, labor, talents, freely give;
Yea, life itself, that they may live;
What hath your Savior done for you!
And what for Him will ye not do?

Thou Spirit of the Lord! go forth;
Call in the South, wake up the North;
Of every clime, from sun to sun,
Gather God’s children into one.
