“ Follow his steps." 1 Pet. 2 : 21. YO to
Goto that feet the tempter's power!
Your Redeemer's conflict see,
Watch with him one bitter hour;
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.
View the Lord of life arraigned ;
Oh, the pangs his soul sustained !
Learn of him to bear the cross.
There, adoring at his feet,
God's own sacrifice complete :
Learn of Jesus Christ to die.
Where they laid his breathless clay :
Who hath taken him away?

Luke 24 : 1-9.
HASTINGS. OW calm and beautiful the morn
Where once the Crucified was borne,
And veiled in midnight gloom !
The Lord is risen-he lives again!
For your departed Lord,
The tomb is all unbarred;
The Lord is risen-he lives again.
Your early footsteps bend ;
Your Advocate and Friend ;
ES, the Redeemer rose ;
And o'er our hellish foes
High raised his conquering head :
Fall to the ground, and sink away.
In full assembly meet,
And worship at his feet :
From realms of day to Jesus' tomb.
And the glad tidings bear;
What music fills the air !
Hath left the dead, he rose to-day.”
Redeemed by him from hell;
The globe on which you dwell :

“ Who is this King of glory." Ps. 24.
Our Jesus is gone up on high ;
Dragged to the portals of the sky.
And wide unfold th' ethereal scene :
Receive the King of glory in.
The Lord who all our foes o'ercame ;
And Jesus is the Conqueror's name.
And angels chant the solemn lay:
Ye everlasting doors, give way!
The Lord, of boundless power possessed ;
God over all, forever blest!
He whom I fix my hopes upon ;
2 This is the way I long had sought,
And mourned because I found it not;
“Come hither, soul, I am the way.”
Wilt take me, guilty as I am :
Nothing but love shall I receive.
How dear a Saviour I have found :

“ He is risen.
Lo! Salem's daughters weep around :
A sudden trembling shakes the ground.
The Lord of glory dies for men !
Jesus, the dead, revives again!
Up to his Father's court he flies;
And shout him welcome to the skies.
