Till my triumphant spirit comes
To put it on afresh.
And ever from the skies
Till he shall bid it rise.
Shall these vile bodies shine,
Be heavenly and divine.
And sing thy praise above!
With our immortal tongues.
Hymn 35. S. M.
Before whose bar severe,
We all shall soon appear-
For that tremendous day,
And stir us up to prayer.' ?
3 To pray and wait the hour
That awful hour unknown,
Thou shalt from heaven come down. 4 Th'immortal Son of Man,
To judge the human race,
With all thy glorious grace. 5 To damp our earthly joys,
Tincrease our gracious fears,
Be sounding in our ears ; 6 The solemn midnight cry,
“ Ye dead, the Judge is come! Arise, and meet him in the sky,
And meet your instant doom !" 7 O may we thus be found
Obedient to thy word !
And looking for our LORD! 8 O may we all ensure
A lot among the blest;
An everlasting rest.
Hymn 36. L. M. INHE great Archangel's trump shall sound,
I (While twice ten thousand thunders roar,)
Tear up the graves, and cleave the ground
And make the greedy sèa restore. 2 The greedy sea shall yield her dead,
The earth no more her slain conceal ; Sinners shall lift their guilty head,
And shrink to see a yawning hell. 3 But we, who now our LORD confess,
And faithful to the end enduré,
Stand, as the rock of ages, sure. 14 We, while the stars from heaven shall fall,
And mountains are on mountains hurl'd,
Shall stand unmoved amidst them all, 1 And smile to see a burning world. 5 The earth, and all the works therein,
Dissolve, by raging flames destroyed, While we survey the awful scene,
And mount aboye the fiery void. • 6 By faith we now transcend the skies,
And on that ruin'd world look down ;
And share the everlasting throne.
