E dies, the Friend of sinners dies:

Lo! Salem's daughters weep around;
A solemn darkness veils the skies ;

A sudden trembling shakes the ground. 2 Ye saints, approach, the anguish view

Of him wlio groans beneath your load ; He gives liis precious life for you,

For you he slieds lis precious blood. 3 Here's love and grief beyond degree,

The Lord of Glory dies for men; But lo! what sudden joys we see,

Jesus, the dead, revives again 4 The rising God forsakes the tomb ;

Up to his Father's court he flies; Cherubic legions gnard lıim home,

And shout him welcome to the skies. 5 Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell

How high our great Deliverer reigns; Sing how he spoil'd the hosts of hell,

And led the tyrant deatlı in chains. 6 Say, “Live for ever, glorious King,

Bom 10 redeem, instruct, and save!" Then ask—“ () death, where is thy sting?

And wliere thy victory, O grave ?”

Inspire these souls of ilıinc; Till every heart which thou hast made Be fill'd with grace

divine. 2 Thou art the Comforter, the gift

Of God, and fire of love; Tlie everlasting spring of joy,

And unction froin above. 3 Thy gifts are manifold, thou writ'st

God's law in each true heart ; The promise of the Father, tlou

Dost heavenly speech impart 4 Enlighten our dark souls, till they

Thy sacred love embrace; Assist our minds, by nature frail,

With thy celestial grace. 5 Drive far from is the mortal foe,

And givo us peace within ; That, by thy guidance blest, we may

Escape the snares of sin. 6 Teach us the Father to confess,

And Son, from death revived, And thee, with both, O Holy Ghost,

Who art from botlı derived.

Our Jesus is gone up on ligli ;
The powers of hell are captive led,

Drayg'd to the portals of the sky. 2 There his triunphal chariot waits,

And angels chant the solemn lay: “ Lift

up your heads, ye heavenly gates, Ye everlasting doors, give way.” 3 Loose ant your bars of massy light,

And wide uufold the radiant scene;
He claims those mansions as his right;

Receive the King of Glory in.
4 “Who is the king of Glory, who ?”

The Lord that all his foes o'ercame, The world, sin, death, and hell o'erthrew

And Jesus is the conqueror's name.

Thou source of ecstacy and love,
Thy praises ring through earth and

40 God Triune, to thee we owe

Our every thought, our every song;
And ever may ily praises flow

From saint and seraphi's burning tongue.

Immortal glory too,
Who saved us by his blood
From everlasting woe:
And now he lives,

And now he reigns,
And sees the fruit

Of all his pains.

And endless worship give,
Whose new-creating power
Makes the dead sinner live:

And fills the soul

With joy divine. 4 Almighty God, to thee

With all her powers,
There faith prevails,

And love adores.

HYMN 80. C. M. ALMIGHTY Lord, before thy throne

Thy mourning people bend:
'Tis on thy pardoning grace alone,

Our prostrate hopes depend. 2 Dark judgments, from thy heavy hand

Thy dreadful power display ; Yet mercy spares our guilty land,

And still we live to pray. 3 How changed, alas! are truths divine,

For error, guilt, and shame; What impious numbers, bold in sin,

Disgrace the Christian name. 4 O turn us, turn us, mighty Lord,

Convert us by thy grace:

Then shall our hearts obey thy word,

And see again thy face. 5 Then, should oppressing foes invade,

We will not sink in fear; Secure of all-sufficient aid,

When God, our God, is near.

HYMN 81. III. 3.
DREAD Jehovah, God of nations,

From thy temple in the skies,
Hear thy people's supplications,

Now for their deliverance rise: 2 Lo! with deep contrition turning,

Humbly at thy feet we bend ;
Hear us, fasting, praying, mourning,

Hear us, spare us, and defend. 3 Though our sins, our hearts confounding,

Long and loud for vengeance call, Thou hast mercy more abounding,

Jesus' blood can cleanse them all. 4 Let that love veil our transgression,

Let that blood our guilt efface: Save thy people from oppression,

Save from spoil thy lioly place

2 All the blessings of the fields,

All the stores the garden yields,
Flocks that whiten all the plain,
Yellow sheaves of ripen'd grain :
Lord, for these our souls shall raise

Grateful vows and solemn praise. 3 Clouds that drop their fattening dews

Suns that genial warmtlı diffuse,
All the plenty summer pours,
Autumn's richi o'erflowing stores:
Lord, for these our souls shall raise

Grateful vows and solemn praise 4 Peace, prosperity, and health,

Private bliss and public wealılı,
Knowledge, with its gladdening streams
Pure religion's holier beams :
Lord, for these onr souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.

5 Yet, should rising whirlwinds tear

From its stem the ripening ear;
Though the sickening flock should fall,
And the hierd desert the stall:
Still to thee our souls shall raise

Grateful vows and solemn praise 6 Should thine alter'd hand restrain

The early and the latter rain,
Blast each opening bud of joy,
And the rising year destroy:
Still to tliec our souls shail raise

Grateful vows and solemu praiso.
7 Life and grace, whate'er our woe.

Still to thee, our God, we owe;
Though of cartlıly hopes berest,
Yet our hope of heaven is left ;
And for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemu praise.

And send deliverance from on higli. 2 In his salvation is our hope;

And in the Name of Israel's God,
Our troops shall lift their banners up,

Our naries spread their Mags abroail. 3. Some trust in horses train’d for war,

And some of chariots make their boasts; Our surest expectations are

From thee, the Lord of heavenly hosts. Then save us, Lord), from slavish fear,

And let our trust be firm and strong, Till thy salvation shall appear,

And hymns of peace conclude our song.

HYMN 84. C. M.
TOUNTAIN of mercy, God of love,

How rich thy bounties are:
The rolling seasons, as they move,

Proclaim tly constant care.
2. When in the bosom of the earth

The sower hid the grain,
Thy goodness mark'd its secret birtls,

And sent the early rain. 3 The spring's sweet influence, Lord, was

thine, The plants in beauty grew; Thou gav'st the summer's suns to shine,

The mild refreshing dew. 4 Tliese various mercies from above

Matured the swelling grain :


RAISE to God, iminortal praise,

For she love that crowns our days;
Bounteous source of every joy,
Let thy praise our tongues employ :
All to thee, our God, we owe,
Source whence all our blessings flow.

A kindly harvest crowns thy love,

And plenty fills the plain. 5 We own and bless thy gracious sway:

Thy land all nature hails ; Seed-time nor harvest, niglit nor day,

Summer nor winter fails.

He folds them in his gracious arins,

Himself declares them blest. 2. “Let them approach," he cries,

“Nor scorn their humble claim; The heirs of heaven are such as these

For such as these I came." 3 Gladly we bring them, Lord,

Devoting them to thee,
Imploring that, as we are thine,

Thine may our offspring be.

Ilis power and grace shall be our song; From him alone all mercies flow,

Ilis arm alone subdues the foe. ? Then praise this Goil, who bows his ear

Propitious to his people's prayer;
And though deliverance he may stay,

Yet answers still in his own day.
3 O may this goodness lead our land,

Still saved by thine Almighty hand
The tribute of its love to bring

To thee, our Saviour and our king: 4 Till every public temple raise

A song of triumplı to thy praise;
An every peaceful, private home,

To thee a temple shall become. ✓ Still Le it our supreme delight

To walk as in tlıy glorious sight,
Still in thy precepts and thy fear,
Till life's last lour, to persevere.

Through his eternal Son. 2 Strong in the Lord o hosts,

And in his mighty power,

With all his strength endued; And take, to arm you for the fight,

The panoply of God. 4 That having all things done,

conflicts past, Ye may behold your victory won,

And stand complete at last.

Drink the rivers of thy grace.
