And, listening to his accents,
May hear, so calm and plain,
May raise the victor-strain.
Let earth her song begin;
And all that is therein ;
Their notes let all things blend,
Our Joy that hath no end."
187 A lively hope by the resurrection. [D. 8s. 78.
1 Peter i. 3. 1 HALLELUJAH, Hallelujah! Hearts to heaven and
voices raise ; Sing to God a hymn of gladness, sing to God
a hymn of praise ! He who on the cross a victim for the world's
salvation bled, Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, now is risen
from the dead. 2 Now the iron bars are broken, Christ from
death to life is born, Glorious life, and life immortal, on this holy
Easter morn: Christ has triumph’d, and we conquer by his
mighty enterprise, We with him to life eternal by his resurrection
rise. 3 Christ is risen, Christ the first-fruits of the
holy harvest-field, Which will all its full abundance at his second
Then the golden ears of harvest will their heads
before him wave, Ripen’d by his glorious sunshine, from the
furrows of the grave. 4. Christ is risen; we are risen; shed upon us
heavenly grace, Rain and dew and gleams of glory from the
brightness of thy face, That we, Lord, with hearts in heaven, here on
earth may fruitful be, And by angel-hands be gather'd, and be ever
safe with thee. 5 Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Glory be to God on
high; Hallelujah to the Saviour, who has gain'd the
victory; Hallelujah to the Spirit, Fount of love and
sanctity; Hallelujah, Hallelujah to the Triune Majesty !
Sundays after Easter : the Lord's
Hay. « THIS IS THE DAY WHICH THE LORD HATH MADE :
WE WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT.
188 Jesus stood in the nvidst, and saith unto them, [L.M.
Peace be unto you.—Johu xx. 19.
Almighty from the vanquish'd tomb;
And fill our hearts with sacred
With all the joy thy smiles afford;
3 Enter our hearts, Redeemer blest;
Enter, thou ever-honour'd guest,
But there to fix thy lasting throne.
And when our life's last hour is come,
And death shall vanish in delight. 189 He shall be as the light of the morning, even as [S.M.
a morning without clouds.—2 Sam. xxiji. 4.
Let there be light to-day;
And chase its gloom away.
Our failing strength renew;
Shed thou thy freshening dew.
This is the day of peace :
The waves of strife be still.
Let earth to heaven draw near
Come down to meet us here.
Send forth thy quickening breath,
O Vanquisher of death." 190 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord.-Ps.cxviii. 25. [P.M. 1 HOSANNA to the living Lord !
Hosanna to the incarnate Word!
Hosanna, Lord: Hosanna in the highest! 2 Hosanna, Lord ! thine angels cry;
Hosanna, Lord ! thy saints reply;
Hosanna, Lord : Hosanna in the highest ! 3 O Saviour, with protecting care,
Return to this thy house of prayer;
Hosanna, Lord: Hosanna in the highest! 4 But, chiefest, in our cleansèd breast,
Eternal ! bid thy spirit rest;
Hosanna, Lord : Hosanna in the highest ! 5 So in the last and dreadful day,
When earth and heaven shall melt away,
Hosanna, Lord: Hosanna in the highest !
The Lord's day.- Rev. i. 10.
[7s. 6s. 1 O DAY of rest and gladness,
O day of joy and light,
Most beautiful, most bright;
Through ages join'd in tune,
To the great God Triune.
The light first had its birth;
Christ rose from depths of earth;
The Spirit sent from heaven;
A triple light was given.
3 Thou art a port protected
From storms that round us rise;
With streams of Paradise ;
In life's dry dreary sand ;
We view our promised land.
The heavenly manna falls ;
The silver trumpet calls;
With pure and radiant beams;
With soul-refreshing streams.
From this our day of rest,
To spirits of the blest.
To Father and to Son
Ever the Three in One. Amen,
192 A day in thy courts is better than a
thousand.-Ps. Ixxxiv. 10.
That saw the Lord arise ;
And these rejoicing eyes.
And feasts his saints to-day;
And love, and praise, and pray.
