233. 7s. M.
Jesus dissipates its gloom !
See the glorious Saviour rise !
Chase those unbelieving fears;
Doubt no more his power to save. 3 Ye who are of death afraid,
Triumph in the scattered shade;
See the place where Jesus lay. 4 So the rising sun appears,
Shedding radiance o'er the spheres ;
And are the tidings true ?
And saw him living too.
Then death has lost his prey;
To reign in endless day.
3 The Lord is risen indeed;
Attending angels hear;
The joyful tidings bear.
And strike each cheerful chord;
To sing our risen Lord.
235. L. M. WESLEY's Col.
Rising with Christ.
If risen indeed with him ye are,
His resurrection's power declare.
By actions show your sins forgiven;
And follow Christ, your Head, to heaven. 3 To him continually aspire,
Contending for your native place,
And only live to love and praise.
Deep in the Father's bosom lies;
236. C. M.
The Father of our Lord;
His majesty adored. 2 When from the dead he raised his Son,
And called him to the sky,
That they should never die. 3 What though the frame of man require
Our flesh to see the dust,
So all his followers must.
Reserved against that day, 'Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
And cannot waste away.
Till the salvation come;
Till Christ shall call us home.
Lo, Salem's daughters weep around;
2 Here's love and grief beyond degree;
The Lord of glory dies for men;
Jesus, the dead, revives again!
The tomb in vain forbids his rise;
4 Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell
How high our great deliverer reigns;
And led the monster death in chains. 5 Say, "Live forever, wondrous king!
Born to redeem and strong to save
238. C. M.
Chase all your fears away;
The place where Jesus lay.
Such wonders love can do;
Which throbbed and bled for you. 3 Then raise your eyes and tune your songs,
The Saviour lives again!
4 High o'er the angelic bands, he rears
His once dishonored head; And through unnumbered years he reigns,
Who dwelt among the dead.
His empty tomb survey;
Through all his shining way.
God's Miracles in Christ.
Behold the dead awake and live!
Leap like the hart, and bless his name! 2 Thus doth the eternal Spirit own
And seal the mission of his Son;
While he hangs bleeding on the cross.
He rises ! and appears with God:
No more to bleed, no more to die !
