HOHENLOHE. 7, 7 :/ 7, 7, 7, 7.
From F. WEBER's Church of England
Sweet repose from worldly care;
When our souls for heaven prepare ;
Victor o'er the hosts of hell :
Let our lips His glory tell.
When we hear Thy holy Word;

Heavenly Sabbaths, happier days;
Endless joys and endless praise.
+ ST. JAMES. C. M.
RAPHAEL COURTEVILLE, about 1680.
is the day the Lord hath made, Hosanna to the anointed King,
To David's holy Son!
Salvation from Thy throne.
To-day He rose and left the dead,
And Satan's empire fell;
And all His wonders tell,
Bless'd be the Lord, who comes to men
With messages of grace;
To save our sinful race.
Hosanna in the highest strains
The Church on earth can raise;
THIS day, by Thy creating word, O day of light, and life, and grace !
First o'er the earth the light was pour'd: From earthly toils sweet resting-place! O Lord, this day upon us shine,
Thy hallow'd hours, best gift of Love, And fill our souls with light divine. We give again to God above! This day the Lord, for sinners slain,
All praise to God the Father be, In might victorious rose again :
All praise, Eternal Son, to Thee, O JESU, may we raised be
Whom with the Spirit we adore From death of sin to life in Thee.
For ever and for evermore.
