HYMN 63 (C. M.) 13 By foreign streams no longer roam, FROM whence thcse direful omens And, weeping,think on Jordan's


In every clime behold a home,
Which heav'n and earth amaze ? In ev'ry temple see thy God.
Wherefore do earthquakes cleave the 4 No taunting foes the song require,
Why hides the sun his rayy? (ground?

No atrangers mock thy captivechain; -2 Well may the earth astonish'd shake, Thy friends provoke the silent lyre, And nature sympathize;

And brethren ask the holy strain. The sun as darkest night be black !

5 Then why, on bending willows hung, Their Maker, Jesus, dies !

Israel, still sleeps the tuneful string? 3 Behold, fast streaming from the tree, Why mute remains the sullen tongue, His all-atoning blood !

And Zion's song delays to sing?
Is this the Infinite ? 'tis he,
My Saviour and my God.

EASTER. 4 For me these pangs his soul assail,

HYMN 68. (C. M.) For me this death is borne;

1 Cor. v. 8. Rom. vi, 9, 10, 11. My sins gave sharpness to the nail, SINCE Chris Forum Passover is slain, And pointed ev'ry thorn.

Let all, with thankful hearts, agree 5 Let sin no more my soul enslave,

To keep the festival:
Break, Lord, its tyrant chain;
O save me, whom thou cim'st to save, 2 Not with the leaven, as of old,
Nor bleed, nor die in vain !

Of sin and malice fed ;
HYMN 66. (1. M.)

But with unfeign'd sincerity,

And truth's unleaven'd bread. St. John xix. 30. 'T Ana meekly bowd his head-aná IS finish'd-so the Saviour cried, 3 Christ, being rais'd by pow'r divine,

And rescu'd from the grave, died;

Shall die no more; death shall on him "Tis finishd-yes, the work is done, No more dominion have. The battle fought, the vict'ry won. 4 For that he died, 'twas for our sins 2 Tis finish'd-ali that heaven decreed, He once vouchsaf'd to dje: And all the ancient prophets said, But that he lives, he lives to God Is now fulfill'd, as long design'd, For all eternity. In me, the Saviour of mankind.

5 So count yourselves as dead to sin, 3 'Tis finish'd-Aaron now no more

But graciously restor'd,
Must stain his robes with purple gore; And made henceforth alive to God,
The sacred veil is rent in twain, Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
And Jewish rites no more remain,

HYMN 69, (III. 1.)
4 'Tis finishd-this, my dying groan,
Shall sins of every kind atone:

HRIST the Lord is' ris'n to-day,

Sons of men and angels say:
Millions shall be redeem'd from death Raise your joys and triumphs high,
By this, my last expiring breath.

Sing ye heav'ns, and earth reply!
$ 'Tis finish'd-heav'n is reconcil'd, 2 Love's redeeming work is done,
And all the pow'rs of darkness spoild: Fought the fight, the vict'ry won:
Peace, love, and happiness, again Jesus' agony is o'er,
Return and dwell with sinful men. Darkness veils the earth no more.
6 'Tis finish'd let the joyful sound 3 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Be heard through all the nations round; Christ has burst the gates of hell;
'Tis finishd-let the echo fly (and sky. Death in vain forbids him rise,
Through heav'n and hell, through earth Christ hath opend paradise.
HYMN 67. (L. M.) 4 Soar we now where Christ hath led
For the Jews.

Foll'wing our exalted Head;
IGH on the bending willows hung, Made like him, like him we rise-

the skies Still mute remains the sullen tongue,

HYMN 70. ? And Zion's song denies to sing ?

(L. M.)
Col, iii. 1, 2.

Let harpand voice unite their strains: If ris'n indeed with him ye are,
Thy promis'd King his sceptre sways; Superior to the joys below,
Behold, thy owri Messiah reigns. His resurrection's pow'r declare :
