31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: 32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. 33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.(KJV)

1. O’er the gloomy hills of darkness, 
Cheered by no celestial ray, 
Sun of Righteousness, arising, 
Bring the bright, the glorious day. 
Let the morning 
Of Thy blessed Gospel dawn. 

2. Kingdoms wide that sit in darkness, 
Grant them, Lord, the glorious light; 
And from eastern coast to western 
May the morning chase the night 
And redemption, 
Freely purchased, win the day! 

3. Fly abroad, eternal Gospel; 
Win and conquer, never cease. 
May Thy lasting, wide dominions 
Multiply and still increase! 
May Thy scepter 
Sway th’enlightened world around!
