Hymn.

Death and Resurrection.

i He dies! the Friend of sinners dies

Lo! Salem's daughters weep around: A solemn darkness veils the skies,

A sudden trembling shakes the ground.

2 Come, saints! and drop a tear or two

For Him who groan'd beneath your load; He shed a thousand drops for you,

A thousand drops of richer blood. 3 Here's love and grief beyond degree,

The Lord of Glory dies for men ! But, lo! what sudden joys we see!

JESUS, the dead, revives again!

4 The rising God forsakes the tomb,

Up to His Father's court He flies; Cherubic legions guard Him home,

And shout Him welcome to the skies!

5 Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell

How high our great Deliv'rer reigns ; Sing how he spoil'd the hosts of hell,

And led the monster, Death, in chains !

6 Say, “Live for ever, wondrous King,

- Born to redeem, and strong to save !" Then ask the monster, “Where's thy sting?

* And where's thy vict'ry, boasting grave?" Hymn.

Resurrection of Christ.

1 YE humble souls, that seek the LORD,

Chase all your fears away;
And bow with pleasure down to see

The place where Jesus lay. 2 Thus low the LORD of life was brought;

Such wonders love can do:
Thus cold in death that bosom lay,

Which throbb’d, and bled for you.

3 A moment give a loose to grief ;

Let grateful sorrows rise,
And wash the bloody stains away

With torrents from your eyes.

4 Then raise your eyes, and tune your songs,

The Saviour lives again :
Not all the bolts and bars of death

The conq’ror could detain.
5 High o'er th' angelic bands He rears

His once dishonour'd head;
And through unnumber'd years He reigns,

Who dwelt among the dead.

6 With joy like His shall ev'ry saint

His empty tomb survey;
Then rise with His ascending LORD

Through all His shining way.

Hymn.

Resurrection of Christ. i “CHRIST, the Lord, is ris'n to-day!"

Sons of men and angels say;
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing, ye heav'ns; and, earth, reply:
Love's redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the battle won:
Lo! the sun's eclipse is o'er;

Lo! he sets in blood no more.
2 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,

CHRIST hath burst the gates of hell :
Death in vain forbids His rise,
CHRIST hath open'd paradise:
Lives again our glorious King!
“Where, O Death, is now thy sting?"
Once he died our souls to save;

“Where's thy vict'ry, boasting Grave?" 3 Soar we now where CHRIST has led,

Foll'wing our exalted head:
Made like Him, like Him we rise ;
Our's the cross, the grave, the skies :
What though once we perish'd all,
Partners of our parents' fall ?
Second life we all receive,

In our heav'nly Adam live. 4 Hail, Thou LORD of earth and heav'n!

Praise to Thee by both be giv'n!
Thee we greet triumphant now;
Hail, the RESURRECTION_Thou!
King of Glory! Soul of bliss !
Everlasting life is this-
Thee to know, Thy pow'r to prove; .
Thus to sing, and thus to love.

Hymn.

Resurrection of Christ.

1

THE LÒRD is ris'n indeed!

And are the tidings true?
Yes, we beheld the SAVIOUR bleed,

And saw Him living too.

2 The LORD is ris'n indeed!

Then justice asks no more :
Mercy and truth are now agreed, i

Which stood oppoš'd beforei

3

The LORD is ris'n indeed!' et

Then is His work perform’d: 1 The captive surety now is freed,

And death, our foe, disarm'd.

The LORD is ris'n indeed !

Then hell has lost it's prey; With Him is ris'n the ransom'd seed,

To reign in endless day.

5 The LORD is ris'n indeed!

He lives to die no more; He lives the sinner's cause to plead,

Whose curse and shame He bore.

6 Then swell your triumphs high'r,

Praise Him by all ador'd,
And join the bright celestial choir,

To sing out ris'n' LORD.

Hymn.
Resurrection of Christ improved.
1 Ye faithful souls, who Jesus know,

If ris'n indeed with Him ye are,
Superior to the joys below,

His Resurrection's pow'r declare. 2 Your faith by holy tempers prove;

By actions show your sins forgiv'n;
And seek the glorious things above,

And follow CHRIST your Head to heav'n. 3 There your exalted SAVIOUR see,

Seated at God's right hand again,
In all His FATHER's majesty,

In everlasting pomp to reign. 4 To Him continually aspire,

Contending for your native place: And emulate the angel-choir,

And only live to love and praise !

Lymn.

Resurrection of Christ. 1 BLEST be the everlasting God,

The FATHER of our LORD! Be His abounding mercy prais’d,

His Majesty ador'd! 2 When from the dead He rais'd His Son,

And callid Him to the sky, He gave our souls a lively hope That they should never die.
