Christ, the Conqueror of Death and Hell. Isa. lxiii. 7. ́
1 ARISE, my soul, arise,
And with a cheerful voice,
In God, the source of all thy joys,
2 His robes were stain'd in blood,
3 By his almighty power
The Heavenly Sun.
1 IN yon bless'd world above,
2 Its all-attracting light
For ever flows the same; No darkness there or night,
No clouds obscure the flame: One endless day will constant shine And every ray is light divine.
3 0, could we see this light, And feel its heavenly heat, Joyful we'd take our flight
To some celestial seat; With angels sit, and sing away, At Jesus feet, an endless day.
Christ the bright and Morning Star.
1 IN glory bright the Saviour reigns,
3 Great Star! in whom salvation dwells,
4 Most glorious Star! be thou our guide,
ǎ Eternal Star! our songs
When we shall meet thee in the skies;
Praise Thee, the bright, the Morning-Star.
The unceasing Goodness of our Heavenly Father.
1 JEHOVAH, God! thy gracious power,
O may the blessings of each hour,
2 If on the wings of morn we speed
3 Thy power is in the ocean deeps,
4 From morn till noon, till latest eve,
5 In all the varying scenes of time,
The Love of our Saviour prompting to Christian Love.
1 JESUS, the friend of man,
2 Here we show forth his love,
3 One faith, one hope, one Lord,
4 Here let our powers unite,
5 Warm'd with our Master's love,
1 KIND Lord, before thy face Again with joy we bow,
For all the gifts and grace,
Thou dost on us bestow;
Our tongues would all thy love proclaim, And chant the honours of thy name.
2 Here, in thine earthly house, Our joyful souls have met; Here paid our solemn vows,
And felt our union sweet:
For this our tongues thy love proclaim, And chant the honours of thy name.
3 Thy truth, like ointment shed, Hath breath'd a rich perfume; Thy light, divinely spread,
Hath broke the darksome gloom: For this our tongues thy love proclaim, And chant the honours of thy name.
4 Now may we dwell in peace, Till here again we come; And may our love increase,
Till thou shalt guide us home: Then shall our tongues thy love proclaim, And chant the honours of thy name.
The Lord seen and adored in the Creation.
1 WHEN I survey this world With all its beauteous frame, Its great Creator I adore,
And celebrate his name.
2 The boundless whole displays
3 The sun in every beam
4 The lofty stars by night,
5 The universal whole
Proclaims Jehovah's praise;
6 The worlds were made in love,
And while in praise my tongue can move,
