5. All hail, triumphant Lord,
Who sav'st us with thy blood!
With thee we rise,
Hymn 74. c. M. 1. THE Lord of Sabbath let us praise,
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. LESS'D morning, whose young dawning rays
And leave his last abode. 2. In the cold prison of a tomb
The dead Redeemer lay,
The third, the 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. "son ;
TOW for a tune of lofty praise 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
Thalmighty 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.
Saviour from the tomb,
The bands of death are torn away,
The yawning tomb gives back its prey. 2. Could neither seal nor stone secure,
Nor men, nor devils make it sure ?
And all the powers of darkness fly. 3. The body breaths, and lifts its head,
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. 5. Haste then, ye souls that first believe,
Who dare the gospel word receive,
Be bold, be Jesus' witnesses.
Their Jesus is to life restor'd ;
Hymn 78. P. M. 1. "HEE, the great Prophet sent from GOD.
Mighty in deed and word we own ; Thou hast on some the grace bestow'd,
Thy rising in their hearts made known ; They publish thee, to life restor'd,
Attesting, they have seen the Lord. 2. Alas for us, whose eyes are held !
Why cannot we our Saviour see ! With us thou art, yet still conceal'd;
O might we hear one word from thee? Speak, and our unbelief remove,
ur baseness to mistrust thy love.
3. Fools as we are, and slow of heart,
So backward to believe the word !
They sang the sufferings of their LORD,
Thy rising to insure our Heaven.
And then the glorious life to live ?
The pain, and then the joy receive?
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 worė, That we with him might die, and rise And bear his nature to the skies!
Hymn 79, P. M.
Thou great Interpreter divine,
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. 3. Now Jesu, now the veil remove,
The folly of our darken'd heart, Unfold the wonders of thy love,
The knowledge of thyself impart :
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 t' abide, 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's eyes
Hymn 80. P. M.
His members to raise, hath rose from the dead:
