5. All hail, triumphant Lord,
With thee we rise,
And empires gain
Hymn 74. c. M. 1. THE Lord of Sabbath let us praise,
1 In concert with the blest, Who joyful in harmonious lays,
Employ an endless rest.
We blest and pious grow;
Triumphant here below.
Of glory was display'd
This universe was made.
With grief and pain extreme; 'Twas great to speak the world from nought,
'Twas greater to redeem.
Hymn 75. C. M. 1. PLESS'D morning, whose young dawning rays
D Beheld our rising God;
And leave his last abode. 2. In the cold prison of a tomb
The dead Redeemer lay,
The third, th' appointed day.
3. Hell and the grave unite
To hold our God in vain ;
And burst their feeble chain.
These sacred hours we pay,
The triumph of the day.
Hymn 76. L. M. 1. N OW for a tune of lofty praise
V To great Jehovah's equal son; Awake, my voice, in heav'nly lays
Tell the loud wonders he hath done. 2. Sing, how he left the worlds of light,
And the bright robes he wore above; How swift and joyful was his flight,
On wings of everlasting love, 3. Deep in the shades of gloomy death
Th'almighty captive pris'ner lay; The almighty captive left the earth,
And rose to everlasting day. . 4. Lift up your eyes, ye sons of light,
Up to his throne of shining grace; : See what immortal glories sit
Round the sweet beauties of his face. 5. Amongst a thousand harps and songs,
JESUS, the God, exalted reigns; His sacred name fills all their tongues,
And echoes thro' the heav'nly plains !
Hymn 77. L. M. 1. THE third auspicious morn is come,
1 And calls your Saviour from the tomb, The bands of death are torn away,
The yawning tomb gives back its prey.
And all the powers of darkness fly.
The keepers sink, and fall as dead,
The living quake, and die for fear. 4. The LORD of life is risen indeed,
To death deliver'd in your stead;
And shews the living way to heaven.
Who dare the gospel word receive, . Your faith with joyful hearts confess
Be bold, be Jesus' witnesses.
Their Jesus is to life restorid ;
Hymn 78. P. M. 1. THEE, the great Prophet sent from GOD
I Mighty in deed and word we own;
Thy rising in their hearts made known ;
Why cannot we our Saviour see !
O might we hear one word from thee?
3. Fools as we are, and slow of heart,
So backward to believe the word ! The prophet's only aim thou art :
They sang the sufferings of their LORD, Thy life for ours a ransom given,
Thy rising to insure our Heaven. 4. Ought not our LORD the death to die,
And then the glorious life to live? To stoop, and then go up on high ?
The pain, and then the joy receive? His blood the purchase price lay down,
Endure the cross, and claim the crown? 5. Ought not the members all to pass
The way their head had pass'd before ? Thro' sufferings perfected he was,
The garment dipt in blood he woré, That we with him might die, and rise And bear his nature to the skies!
Hymn 79, P. M. NOME then, thou Prophet of the Lord,
2. Thou great Interpreter divine, Explain thine own transmitted word;
To teach, and to inspire is thine. Thou only canst thyself reveal,
Open the book, and loose the seal. 2. Whate'er the antient prophets spoke
Concerning thee, O CHRIST, make known, Sole subject of the sacred Book,
Thou fillest all, and thou alone ; Yet there our LORD we cannot see,
Unless thy spirit lends the key.
The folly of our darken'd heart,
Our ear, our inmost soul we bow :
Speak, Lord, thy servants hearken now. 4. Not as tho’ thou wouldst farther go,
Our friend and counsellor, and guide, But stay, the path of life to shew,
Still with our souls vouchsafe tabide, Constrain'd by thy own mercy stay,
Nor leave us at our close of day. 5. Come in, with thy disciples sit,
Nor suffer us to ask in vain.. Nourish us, Lord, with living meat,
Our souls with heavenly bread sustain ; Break to us now the mystic bread,
And bid us on thy body feed. 6. Honour the means ordain'd by thee...
The great unbloody, sacrifice,
Thyself in our enlighten'd eyes
Hymn 80. P. M. ID REAK forth into praise, our surety and head,
DHis members to raise, hath rose from the dead: The pow'r of his spirit hath quicken'd our Lord, That we by his merit may all be restor’d. 2. Our captain and king with shouts we proclaim, And joyfully sing the wonderful name; The name all victorious we, publish and feel, Triumphantly glorious o'er sin, earth, and hell. 3. The power of his rise we know and declare, And rapt to the skies, his happiness share ; In heavenly places, with Jesus we sit,
od Jesus's praises with angels repeat..
