3 What though our inbred sins require
Our flesh to see the dust,
So all His followers must. 4 There's an inheritance divine
Reserv'd against that day; 'Tis uncorrupted, undefild,
And cannot fade away.
Till CHRIST shall call us home.
Risen with Christ. 1 HEARKEN, ye children of your God; ;
Ye heirs of glory, hear;
Might charm the dullest ear.
Your souls to sin must die;
Enthron'd divinely fair ;
On wings of faith and love; Jesus your choicest treasure lies,
And be your hearts above.
5 But earth and sin will drag us down,
When we attempt to fly;
To raise and fix us high.
1 HOSANNA to the Prince of Light,
That cloth'd Himself in clay,
And tore the bars away.
Since our IMMANUEL rose;
And spoild our hellish foes.
And to His FATHER flies,
And triumph in His eyes.
And scatters blessings down; Our Jesus fills the middle seat
Of the celestial throne. 5 Raise your devotion, mortal tongues,
To reach His bless'd abode : Sweet be the accents of your songs
To our incarnate God.
Your sweetest voices raise:
Ascension and Intercession. 1 HAIL! Thou once-despised Jesus!
Hail! Thou Galilean King ! Thou didst suffer to release us,
Thou didst free salvation bring.
Bearer of our sin and shame!
Life is given through Thy Name. 2 Paschal LAMB, by God appointed,
All our sins on Thee were laid ;
Thou hast full atonement made:
Through the virtue of Thy blood;
Peace is made 'tween man and God. 3 JESUS, hail! enthron'd in glory,
There for ever to abide !
Seated at Thy FATHER's side. There, for sinners Thou art pleading;
There, Thou dost our place prepare; Ever for us interceding,
Till in glory we appear. 4 Worship, honour, pow'r, and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive ! Loudest praises, without ceasing,
Meet it is for us to give. Help, ye bright angelic spirits,
Bring your noblest, sweetest lays; Help to sing our Saviour's merits;
Help to chart IMMANUEL'S praise.
i JESUS the LAMB of God hath bled,
the tree! Beneath my curse He bow'd His head;
'Tis finish'd! He hath died for me. 2 For me I now believe He died:
He made my ev'ry crime His own ; Fully for me He satisfied :
FATHER, well-pleas'd behold. Thy Son! 3 See where before the throne He stands,
And pours the all-prevailing pray'r; Points to His side, and lifts His hands,
And shows that I am graven there. 4 He ever lives for me to pray ; He prays
that I with Him may reign : Amen to what
LORD doth say;
1 He lives, the great Redeemer lives !
What joy the blest assurance gives !
Pleads the full merit of His blood. 2 Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And justice, arm’d with frowns, appears;
3 Hence then, ye black despairing thoughts:
Above our fears, above our faults,
And guilt recedes, and terror dies. 4 In ev'ry dark distressful hour,
When sin and Satan join their pow'r,
That JESUS bears us on His heart. 5 Great Advocate, Almighty Friend
On Him our humble hopes depend:
Beyond the reach of humble sighs ?
Too languid to ascend the skies?
The weak petition, if sincere,
But reaches thine all-gracious ear.
See where the great REDEEMER stands, The glorious ADVOCATE on high,
With precious incense in His hands ! 4. He sweetens ev'ry humble groan,
He recommends each broken prayer: Recline thy hope on Him alone,
Whose power and love forbid despair.
