To Death deliver'd in your Stead,

And shews the living Way to Heav'n;

Lives to quicken lost Mankind,

And Angels tell the Lord is ris'n,

And Justice now is on your side,

Pleads the rich Ransom of his Blood,
No flaming Sword, no Bar remains,.
But Mercy now triumphant reigns,
Mercy, Mercy, &c.

Believers, hail ! your rising Head,
The first Begotten from the Dead,
Your Resurrection's sure thro' his,
To endless Life, to endless Bliss,
Endless, Endless, &c. HYMN-.

HYMN CCVI.

Resurrection of the Saints, &c.

YE Christians, hear the joyful News!
Death has receiv'd a deadly Bruise,
Our Lord has made his Empire fall,
And conquer'd him that conquer'd All,
Conquer'd, &c.

Thus doom'd are all Men once to Die,
Yet Saints, by Faith, Death's Pow'r defy";
They soon shall feel his Bands unbound,
Awaken'd by th' Archangel's found,
Awaken'd &c.

The Trump of God shall rend the Rocks,
And open adamantine Locks;
Come forth the Dead, from Death's dark dome,
And Jesus calls his ransom'd home,
Jesus, Jesus, &c.

Ye Sinners timely warming take,
Turn to the Lord, your Ways forsake,
And hope, thro' God's Almighty Pow'r
The happy Resurrection Hour.
Happy, Happy, &c.

Thus to Sing, and thus to Love,

Ascension,

TO Jesus our ascended God,
New Honours let us raise,
And Sing the Triumphs of his Cross,
To his most worthy Praise.

The

Th' Almighty Conqu'ror reigns on high,

He's now fat down above,
To plead the Victories he has won,

Upon a Throne of Love.

What tho' the Powers of Hell combine,

To drive our Souls away;
Death, Sin and Hell, are vanquished Foes,

Rife up, our Souls away.

'Tis sinilh'd! said he long ago.

When he on Earth did Die; But now 'tis sinish'd double so,

For he"s ascended high.

EMmanuel to Heaven is gone,
And sits at God's right Hand,
Before him round the glorious Throne,
Thousand of Thousands stand.

His Majesty and Grace,
And all the Elders now cast down,

Their Crowns before his Face.

The heavenly Hosts surround th' Abode,

Of this exalted King,
And Songs of Praise to him, their God,

With chearful Voices Sing.

Glory Glory to thee is all their Song,

Who for thy Saints were Slain, Wisdom and Power to thee belong,

And endless Praise, Amen.

Psalm xxiv. 7. Lift up your Heads, Use.

OU R Lord is risen from the Dead,
Our Jesus is gone up on high, n
The Powers of Hell are Captive led,.
Drag'd to the Portals of the Skie.

There his Triumphant Chariot waits,
And Angels chaunt the Solemn Lay;
Lift up your heads, ye heavenly Gates,
Ye everlasting Doors give way.

Loose all your Bars of Massy Light,
And wide unfold th' etherial Scene:
He claims these Mansions as his right,
Receive the King of Glory in.

Who is the King of Glory? who?
The Lord, that all his Foes o'ercame,
The World, Sin, Death, and Hell o'erthrew,
And Jesus is the.Conqueror's Name,

Lo! his Triumphant Chariot waits,
And Angels chaunt the Solemn Lay:
Lift up your Heads, ye heavenly Gates,
Ye Everlasting Doors give way.
