126 Isaiah xxii, 1. (L. M.)
The fittest place for such as we!
The debtors here alone are free.
In debt, and having nought to pay;
Our safety by the cross to stay.
A shelter from the furious blast;
Until the storm be overpast.
The danger soon will pass away;
1 Corinthians xv, 20—22. (7's.) 1 JESUS Christ is ris’n to-day, Hallelujah,
Our triumphant holiday :
Suffer to redeem our loss. 2 Hymns of praise then let us sing, Hallelujah,
Unto Christ our heav'nly King;
3 For the pains which he endur'd, Hallelujah,
Our salvation have procur’d;
128 Isaiah xliv, 1–8. (P. m.)
Praise him, angels, in the height:
Praise him all ye stars and light:
Worlds his mighty voice obey'd;
For their guidance, he hath made. 2 Praise the Lord! for he is glorious,
Never shall his promise fail ;
Sin and death shall not prevail :
Hosts on high, his pow'r proclaim;
Laud and magnify his name !
129 Matthew xxiv, 30—31. (P. M.)
The end of things created;
On clouds of glory seated :
The trumpet sounds, the graves restore
Prepare, my soul, to meet him! 2 The dead in Christ shall first arise,
At the last trumpet's sounding, And meet their Saviour in the skies,
With joy his throne surrounding : No gloomy fears their souls dismay, His presence sheds eternal day,
On those prepar'd to meet him.
1 JESU, lover of my soul,
Let me to thy bosom fly;
O receive my soul at last.
3 Plenteous grace with thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin :
1 MEET and right it is to sing,
In ev'ry time and place,
The God of truth and grace:
In one thanksgiving join,
Eternal praise be thine.
2 Father!-God! thy love we praise,
Which gave thy Son to die,
Alike we glorify.
Praise to thee be giv'n,
And earth is turn’d to heav'n.
132 Psalm c, 3. (s. M.)
In whom we are and move,
Of thy creating love!
Let all the ransom'd race
For thy redeeming grace.
Let all thy saints adore
Thine heart-renewing pow'r.
Let all the hosts above,
And dwell upon thy love !
Luke xviii, 1. (c. m.)
In this our evil day;
The pow'r to watch and pray.
Long as the cross we bear,
In never ceasing pray’r.
