THE LORD, is risen ! He who came

To suffer death and conquer too:

Aided by grace, be our employ
To die to sin, to live to God;

To serve with fear and holy joy.

Triumphant now,, proclaim His praise;
Let saints on earth adore His love,

And consecrate to him their days.
He lives, He lives, who once was dead
Let glory crown the Conq'ror's head.
When life is past, when time is o'er,

O may we all 'to glory rise;
There dwell with Him for evermore,

With countless myriads in the skies,
And sing his spraise, who once was dead,
And ever crown our Conq'ror's head,

How weak the bands of conquer'd death ; Sweet pledge, that all who trust His name

Shall rise, and draw ipamortal breath! 3 Our surety freed, declares us free, 71

For whose offences He was seiz'd;
Our pardon in his hands we see?:)!

And shout to view Jchovan pleas'd: 4 Jesus, once number'd with the dead,

Unseals His eyes, to sleep no more,
And ever lives pur cause to plead,

For whom the paitis of death He bore. 5 Thy'risen Lord, my soul adore,

See the rich diadem He wears!
Thou too shall bear an harp of gold,

o crown thy jwhen He appears. A 6 Tho'l in the dust I lay my head,

Yet, gracious God, Thou wilt not leave
My flesh for ever with the dead,

Nor lose Tliy children'in the grave.
