dead ?-Luke 24, 5. 1 ORNING byeaks upon the tomb,
Day of triumph through the skies;
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.
Shedding radiance o'er the spheres;
Chase the terrors of the night. 162
Death, resign thy mighty prey:
Glowing with immortal bloom.
Now to glory see Him rise;
Hail and sing the Incarnate God. 3 Heaven unfolds its portals wide;
Gracious Hero! through them ride;
4 Praise Him, ye celestial choirs,
Praise, and sweep your golden lyres,
Let the strains be sweet and strong! 5 Every note with wonder swell,
Sin o'erthrown, and conquered hell!

And death, our foe, disarmed. 5 “The Lord is risen indeed!”
Then hell has lost its prey:
To reign in endless day.

The joyful tidings bear.
They strike each cheerful chord,
To sing our risen Lord. 164 The firstfruits of them that slept.

Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply. 2 Love's redeeming work is done;
Fought the fight, the battle won:
3 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ has burst the gates of hell,
Christ hath opened Paradise.
Where's thy victory, boasting grave? 5 Soar we now where Christ hath led,
Following our exalted Head;
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. 6 King of glory! Soul of bliss!

Ps. 68, 18. 1
Triumphant o'er the grave,
Omnipotent to save:
For Jesus liveth that was dead. 2 Who now accuses them,
For whom their Surety died ?
Whom God hath justified ?
For Jesus liveth that was dead. 3 Christ hath the ransom paid,
The glorious work is done,
By Him our victory won :

By His almighty power ;
And lives to die no more,

Triumphant o'er the tomb; Cease, cease to grieve, cast off your
fears: In heaven your mansions He prepares,
And soon will take you home. 3 His church is still His joy and crown, He looks with love and pity down
On her He did redeem;
167 Christ being raised from the dead, 1 Y ;
ES, the Redeemer rose;
And o'er our hellish foes
The guards around
And sunk away.
In full assembly meet,
Joyful they come,
And wing their way
From realms of day
To such a tomb,
And the glad tidings bear:
Jesus, who bled,
He rose to-day."
Jesus, who bled,
No more to die."

Arose, and left the grave: Now let our songs His triumph tell, Who broke the chains of death and hell,
And ever lives to save. 2 The First-begotten from the dead, Behold Him rise, His people's Head,
Immortal life to bring; [die, What though the saints like Him shall They share their leader's victory,
And triumph with their King. 3 No more we tremble at the grave; For He, who died our souls to save,
Wiú raise our bodies too: What though this earthly house shall
fail, The Saviour's power will yet prevail
And build it up anew.

high, For Jesus hath risen, and man shall
not die; Vain were the terrors that gathered
around Him, And short the dominion of death and the grave;
