That earth and heav'n and all may see
My love to him, who died for me?
Nor be thy new command forgot,
Thy servants should each other love. 4. When on thy cross I fix mine eye,
Let ev'ry savage passion die;
HYMN 154 L. M.
And range thro' earth and mount the skies, And view each various form of good,
Where angels hold their high abode. 2. Hath not the bounteous King of heav'n
His chief belov'd already giv'n?
For sinners ransom'd with his blood ? 3. My soul, with fearless faith embrace
T'he sacred cov’nant of his grace ;

From the bright realms above;
A voice of pow'r and love. 2.“Maintain the fight, my faithful band,
“Nor fear the mortal blow; “He, that in such a warfare dies,
“Shall speedy vic'try know.
“And in the dust was laid :
“And glory crowns my head.
“My hands the crown shall give;
“ And you the blest reward shall share,
“ While God himself shall live.”
With courage and with love,
Our hopes are fix'd above.
To triumph and renown;
HYMN 156. L. M.
From Sinai's top in fire and smoke,
Invites us now to seek his face.
He speaks in love from Zion now.
That calls us wand'rers back to God. 3. Hark! how from Calvary it sounds,
From the Redeemer's bleeding wounds:
Then, sinner, look to me, and live.” 4. What other arguments can move
The heart, that slights a Saviour's love?
IX. RESURRECTION AND GLORY
HYMN 157. L. M.
Lo! Salem's daughters weep around.
A sudden trembling shakes the ground.
2. Here's love and grief beyond degree:
The Lord of glory dies for man ! But lo! what sudden joys we see !
Jesus, the dead revives again. 3. The rising God forsakes the tomb :
In vain the tomb forbids his rise. Cherubic legions guard him home,
And shout him welcome to the skies. 4. Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell,
How high our great Deliv'rer reigns. Sing, how he spoil'd the hosts of hell,
And led the monster, death, in ohains. 5. Say:“Live for ever, wondrous King!
* Born to redeem, and strong to save!" Then ask the monster:“ where's thy sting! “ And where's thy victry, boasting grave ?"
HYMN 158 C. M.
Chase all your fears away ;
The place where Jesus Jay.
Such wonders love can do!
Which throob’d and bled for you! 3. A moment give a loose to grief;
Let grateful sorrows rise ;
With torrents from your eyes.
The Saviour lives again!
The Conq’ror could detain.
His once dishonour'd head;
Who dwelt among the dead.
His empty tomb survey ;
And rise with his ascendiug Lord
HYMN 159 P. M.
Sons of men and angels say: Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye'heav'ns, and earth reply. 2. Love's redeeming work is done;
Fought the fight, the battle won.
Lo! he sets in blood no more.
Christ has open's Paradise.
Where, o death, is now thy sting?
HYMN 160. P. M. 1. ANGEL, roll the rock away.
Glowing in immortal bloom.
Fame's eternal trump of praise.
Hear the joy-inspiring sound. 3. Hail ! victorious Jesus, hail !
On thy cloud of glory sail
Up to waiting worlds on high.
Glorious hero! thro' them ride.
Thy great Father's and thine own. 5. Hosts of heav'n, seraphic fires !
Raptur'd, sweep your sounding lyres.
Sons of men ! in humbler strain
Sing your mighty Saviour's reign. 6. Ev'ry note with wonder swell;
Sin o’erthrown, and captiv'd hell !
HYMN 161. s. M.
The builders did refuse!
In spite of envious Jews. 1. The work, O Lord, is thine,
And wondrous in our eyes:
This day did Jesus rise.
His promises are true;
Confirrn'd of heav'n we view. 4. Hosannah to the King
Of David's royal blood!
Salvation from your God. 5. O come the happy hour,
When all the world shall own
And worship at thy throne! 6. We bless thy holy word,
Which all this grace displays;
HYMN 162. P. M.
The Saviour left the dead,
In wild dismay
