:

I HERE shall death's triumph end: the rock-barred door

Is opened wide, and the great prisoner gone;
Look round and see, upon the vacant floor,

The napkin and the grave-clothes lie alone.
2 Yes: death's last hope, his strongest fort and prison,

Is shattered, never to be built again ;
And he, the mighty captive, – he is risen,

Leaving behind the gate, the bar, the chain.
8 Yes: he is risen who is the First and Last,

Who was and is, who liveth and was dead:
Beyond the reach of death he now has passed,
Of the one glorious Church the glorious Head.

374. Song of the Angels of Bethlehem. Cawood. | 2 Israel's strength and consolation, 1 Hark! what mean those holy voices,

Hope of all the earth thou art,

Dear desire of every nation,
Sweetly sounding through the skies ?
Lo! the angelic host rejoices;

Joy of every longing heart.
Heavenly hallelujahs rise.

3 Born thy people to deliver, % Listen to the wondrous story

Born a child, and yet a King; Which they chant in hymns of joy:

Born to reign in us for ever, "Glory in the highest; glory,

Now thy precious kingdom bring. Glory be to God most high.

4 By thine own indwelling spirit, 3 “ Peace on earth, good-will from heaven, Rule in all our hearts alone; Reaching far as man is found;

Let us all in thee inherit,
Souls redeemed and sins forgiven, - Raise us to thy glorious throne.

Loud our golden harps shall sound. 4 “Christ is born, the great Anointed;

376.

The Cross of Christ. Heaven and earth his praises sing:

1 In the cross of Christ I glory, Oh receive whom God appointed

Towering o'er the wrecks of time: For your Trophet, Priest, and King!"

All the light of sacred story 375.

Gathers round its bead sublime Coming of Christ. 1 COME, thou long-expected Saviour, 2 When the woes of life o'ertake me, Born to set thy people free,

Hopes deceive and fears annoy, From our fears and sins deliver;

Never shall the cross forsake me: Let us find our rest in thee.

Lo! it glows with peace and joy.
