View where He lay with exultation; "Tis there our hope begins :
Yet stay not there, thy sorrow feeding,
if 3 Still in the shameful cross I glory, Where His dear blood was spilt ; For there the great Propitiatory Abolished all my guilt:
mf 2 Weep not for Him at Calvary's station; mf 4 By death He death's dark king defeated,
Weep only for thy sins:
And overcame the grave;
Yet what, 'mid conflict and temptation,
He lives, the Captain of Salvation;
Rising, the triumph He completed;
f Heaven's happy myriads bow before Him;
Thy doubting servant chide, And bad'st the eye of sense behold Thy wounded hands and side;
2 Grant us, like him, with heartfelt awe
A fuller faith's reward.
Jesus lives! by this we know,
135 And Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God.-JOHN XX. 28.
3 And while that wondrous record now
Of unbelief we hear,
O let us only lowlier bow
2 Jesus lives! henceforth is death
Jesus lives! for us He died;
Behold I am alive for evermore.-REV. i. 18. thy now

Pure in heart may we abide,
Jesus lives! our hearts know well, Nought from us His love shall sever; Life, nor death, nor powers of hell, Tear us from His keeping ever.
5 Jesus lives! to Him the throne
May we go where He is gone,
Hallelujah! Christian F. Gellert, tr. by F. E. Cox.

But in the hope, that shall not die,
That I may know... the power of His resurrection.-PHIL. iii. 10.
EAR Saviour of a dying world,
Where grief and change must be,
O not in cold despair of joy,
Or weariness of pain,
f 2 I would arise in all Thy strength
With love's unflinching will;
For all my future way:
mf 3 And then, there shall be yet an end;
How dear to those who watch for Thee
T. H. H. CROSSLEY.
Then shall the saying come to pass
4 Yes, they shall meet, and face to face,
For this corruptible must rise,
And this frail mortal must put on
f 5 Shine then, Thou resurrection Light,
As all our griefs were Thine:
Our faded hopes restore,
3 And ever on our earthly path
That we may be where now Thou art,
A light still breaks behind the cloud
Lift up our hearts, lift up our minds;
5 That where Thou art, at God's right hand,
Mrs. C. F. Alexander.

We see Jesus... crowned with glory-HEB. ii. 9.
Every knee to Him shall bow:
2 Crown the Saviour, angels, crown Him!
mf 3 Sinners in derision crowned Him,
ff 4 Hark! those bursts of acclamation!
O, what joy the sight affords !
Crown Him, crown Him
