And tunes afresh the mental powers ;

The welcome news with gladness hear;
The Lord is ris'n indeed! 2 The shades of death withdrawn,
His eyes their beams display; So wakes the sun,
when rosy dawn

With loud hosannas ring. 4 Ye pilgrims, too, below,
Your hearts and voices raise;
And ev'ry mouth be praise.

All bare, and disarray'd,
Tall cedars nod,

Inconstancy in Religion lamented. • ERPETUAL Source of light and grace!
We hail thy sacred name; Through ev'ry year's revolving round,
Thy goodness is the same

In all thy righteous ways. 5 Arm'd with this energy
divine Our souls shall constant provė, And, with increasing transport, press
On to thy courts above.

Pursues his radiant way,

And hear almost in vain ;
My languid powers retain!
Ho'y negligent my fear!
How few affections there!
To give thy word success;
And deep its truths impress.
That leads to joys on high;
