Mark 16 : 6.




YHRIST, the Lord, is risen to-day,"

Sons of men and angels say:
Raise your joys and triumphs high;

Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply!
2 Love's redeeming work is done,

Fought the fight, the battle won:
Lo! our Sun's eclipse is o’er;

Lo! he sets in blood no more.
3 Lives again our glorious King!

Where, O Death, is now thy sting?
Once he died our souls to save;

Where's thy vict'ry, boasting Grave?
4 Soar we now where Christ hath led,

Following our exalted Head :
Made like him, like him we rise,

Ours the cross, the grave, the skies !
Come, see the place."

CORNING breaks upon the tomb;
Day of triumph! through the skies

See the glorious Saviour rise !
2 Christian ! dry your flowing tears ;

Chase those unbelieving fears :
Look on his deserted grave;
Doubt no more his power to save.


3 Ye, who are of death afraid,

Triumph in the scattered shade;
Drive your anxious cares away :

See the place where Jesus lay!
King of kings." Rev. 17 : 14.

ONS of Zion, raise your songs !

Praise to Zion's King belongs ;
His the victor's crown and fame :

Glory to the Saviour's name !
2 Sore the strife, but rich the prize,

Precious in the Victor's eyes :
Glorious is the work achieved,

Satan vanquished, man relieved !
3 Sing we then the Victor's praise;

Go ye forth and strew the ways;
Bid him welcome to his throne:

He is worthy, he alone !
4 Place the crown upon his brow;

Every knee to him shall bow;
Him the brightest seraph sings ;
Heaven proclaims him “King of kings !"


John 14 : 28.


E is gone! we heard him say,

I ;”

Gone is that dear form and face,

But not gone his present grace.
2 Though himself no more we see,

Comfortless we cannot be ;
No, his Spirit still is ours,

Quickening, freshening all our powers.
3 He is gone! but we once more

Shall behold him as before,
In the heaven of heavens the same

As on earth he went and came.
4 In the many mansions there,

Place for us he will prepare :
In that world unseen, unknown,
He and we shall yet be one.

Rev. 4: 10, 11.

PERRONET. LL hail the power of Jesus' name !


Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown him Lord of all !
2 Sinners whose love can ne'er forget

The wormwood and the gall;
Go, spread your trophies at his feet

And crown him Lord of all!
3 Let every kindred, every tribe,

On this terrestrial ball,
To him all majesty ascribe,

And crown him Lord of all!
4 Oh that with yonder sacred throng

We at his feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song,

And crown him Lord of all! 196.

Greatly to be praised.
H for a shout of sacred joy

Let every land their tongues employ,

And hymns of triumph sing.
2 Jesus, our God, ascends on high ;

His heavenly guards around
Attend him rising through the sky,

With trumpets' joyful sound.


3 While angels shout and praise their King,

Let mortals learn their strains ;
Let all the earth his honor sing;

(’er all the earth he reigns.
Rev. 5:6–12.

Watts. EHOLD the glories of the Lamb,


Prepare new honors for his name,

songs before unknown.
2 Let elders worship at his feet,

The church adore around,
With vials full of odors sweet,

And harps of sweeter sound.
3 Now to the Lamb that once was slain,

Be endless blessings paid !
Salvation, glory, joy, remain

For ever on thy head !
4 Thou hast redeemed our souls with blood,

Hast set the prisoners free,
Hast made us kings and priests to God,

And we shall reign with thee. 198.

To royal honors raised our head,

And made us priests to God ;-
2 To him let every tongue be praise,

And every heart be love;
All grateful honors paid on earth,

And nobler songs above!
3 Behold, on flying clouds he comes !

His saints shall bless the day;
While they that pierced him sadly mourn

In anguish and dismay.
4 Thou art the First, and thou the Last;

Time centres all in thee,
Th' almighty God, who was, and is,

And evermore shall be.

HARWELL. 88 & 78.

Heb. 1:3-8.


ARK! ten thousand harps and voices
Jesus reigns, and heaven rejoices ;

Jesus reigns, the God of love:
See, he sits on yonder throne;

Jesus rules the world alone.—REF.
2 King of glory, reign forever!

Thine an everlasting crown :
Nothing from thy love shall sever

Those whom thou hast made thine own:
Happy objects of thy grace,

Destined to behold thy face.
3 Saviour, hasten thine appearing ;

Bring, oh, bring the glorious day,
When, the awful summons hearing,

Heaven and earth shall pass away!
Then, with golden harps, we'll sing,

Glory, glory to our King!”
Heb. 7: 25.

ESUS, hail! enthroned in glory,

There forever to abide ;
All the heavenly hosts adore thee,

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.
