Nor let thy spreading Gospel rest

Here is a video I posted at What's Wrong With the World several years ago.

The Kimyal People Receive the New Testament from UFM Worldwide on Vimeo.

I thought of it today when we sang "My God Thy Table Now is Spread" for the Communion hymn and got to this verse:
Drawn by thy quick'ning grace, O Lord,
In countless numbers let them come
And gather from their Father's board
The Bread that lives beyond the tomb.

Countless numbers. It reminds one of this passage in Scripture,
After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.... (Revelation 7:9-10) \
Let it be so, Amen.
