5th P. M. 4 lines 7s.

Ascension day,
TAIL the day that sees Him rise,

Christ, Awhile to mortals given,
Reascends his native heaven.
? There the pompous triumph waits :
Lift your heads, eternal gates;
Wide unfold the radiant scene;
Take the King of glory in.
3 Circled round with angel powers,
Their triumphant Lord and ours,
Conqu'ror over death and sin,--
Take the King of glory in.
4 Him though highest beaven receives,
Still he loves the earth he leaves;
Though returning to his throne,
Still he calls mankind his own.
5 See, he lifts his hands above!
See, he shows the prints of love!
Hark, his gracions lips bestow
Blessings on his Church below!

3d P. M. 4 6s & 2 8s.
Glory to glory's King.
GOD is gone up on high,

With a triumphant noise,
The clarions of the sky

Proclaim the angelic joys:
Join all on earth, rejoice and sing;
Glory ascribe to glory's King,
2 All power to our great Lord ?!

Is by the Father given;
By angel hosts adored,

He reigns supreme in heaven: ita
Join all on earth, rejoice and sing;
Glory ascribe to glory's King.

3 Thus saved, may we with joy appear

In beaven before his face;
And, with the blest assembly there,

Sing bis redeeming grace.

1st P. M. 6 lines 88.
Messiah, the Saviour and the Judge.
(ESSIAH, joy of every heart,

Thou, thou the King of glory art,
The Father's everlasting Son:
Thee it delights thy Church to own;
For all our hopes on thee depend,
Whose glorious mercies never end.
? When thou hadst render'd up thy breata,
And, dying, drawn the sting of death,
Thou didst from earth triumphant rise,
And ope the portals of the skies;
That all who trust in thee alone,
Might follow, and partake thy throne.
3 Seated at God's right hand again,
Thou dost in all his glory reign;
Thou dost, thy Father's image, shine
In all the attributes divine;
And thon with judgment clad shalt come,
To seal our everlasting doom.
4 Wherefore we now for mercy pray;
O Saviour, take our sins away:
Before thou as our Judge appear,
In dreadful majesty severe,
Appear onr Advocate with God,
And save the purchase of thy blood.

L. M.
The great Anti-type.

The legal off'rings all foreshow'd,
Borrow'd their whole effect from thee,

And drew their virtue from thy blood :

. The blood of goats and bullocks slain,

Could never for one sin atone; To purge the guilty off'rer's stain,

Thine was the work, and thine alone, 3 These feeble types and shadows old,

Are all in thee, the Truth, fulfill'd: We in thy sacrifice behold

The substance of those rites reveal'd. 4 Thy meritorious sufferings past,

We see by faith to us brought back; And, on thy grand oblation cast,

Its saving benefits partake. 163

C. M.
His sympathizing love.

joy we meditate the grace His heart is made of tenderness,

His bowels melt with love.
2 Touch'd with a sympathy within,

He knows our feeble frame;
He knows what sore temptations mean,

For be hath felt the same.
3 He, in the days of feeble flesh,

Pour'd out strong cries and tears, And in his measure feels afresh

What every member bears.
4 He'll never quench the smoking flax,

But raise it to a flame;
The bruised reed he never breaks,

Nor scorns the meanest name.
5 Then let our humble faith address

His mercy and his power; We shall obtain deliv ring grace

In every trying hour.
