4 Who is the King of glory, who?-
6 Who is the King of glory, who?-
175 He ever liveth to make intercession
for them.-Heb. 7, 25.
1 Hall His native skies!
Christ, awhile to mortals given,
Christ hath vanquished death and sin:
3 Highest heaven its Lord receives;
5 What though parted from our sight,
176 A great high priest, that is passed
into the heavens.-Heb. 4, 14.
HE atoning work is done,
And Jesus now is gone
His people's cause to plead:
He stands in heaven their great High
And bears their names upon His breast.
2 No temple made with hands
His place of service is;
Are all fulfilled, and now withdraw. 3 And though awhile He be
Hid from the eyes of men,
great High Priest again; In brightest glory He will come, And take His waiting people home. 177 Behold, I am alive for evermore.
Rev. , 18 1 JESUS lives. no longer now
Can thy terrors, Death, appal us; Jesus lives! and this we know, Thou, O Grave, canst not enthral us. 2 Jesus lives! henceforth is death But the gate of Life immortal;
This shall calm our trembling breath,
Pure in heart may we abide,
Jesus lives! our hearts know well,
Lite, nor death, nor powers of hell,
Jesus lives! to Him the throne
May we go where He is gone,
78. The man, Christ Jesus.-) Tim. 2, 3. 1 CHRIS
HRIST to heaven is gone before
In the body here He wore;
Is our Brother glorified.
Tis our nature on the throne;
3 Fear not, ye of little faith,
5 As our Shepherd He is there,
179 The power of His resurrection.
Phil. 3, 10.
1 JESUS, my Redeemer, lives,
Christ, my trust, is dead no more; In the strength this knowledge gives, Shall not all my fears be o'er?
Calm, though death's long night be fraught
Still with many an anxious thought.
3 Close to Him my soul is bound,
1801 am He that liveth, and was dead.
-Rev. 1, 18.
I show me not my Saviour dying,
Nor in the tomb a captive lying,
For He has left the dead.
Then bid me not that form extended For my Redeemer own,
Who, to the highest heavens ascended, In glory fills the throne,
2 Weep not for Him at Calvary's station; Weep only for thy sins,
View where йe lay with exultation;
Yet stay not there, thy sorrows feeding,
3 Still in the shameful cross I glory,
Yet what, mid conflict and temptation.
4 By death, He death's dark king defeated,
Heaven's happy myriads bow before
He comes, the Judge of men;
Lord Jesus! own me then.
181 The Lord is among them, as in
Sinai, in the holy place.-Ps. 68, 17. ORD,whenThoudidst ascend on high, Ten Thousand angels filled the sky Those heavenlyguards around Theewait. Like chariots that attend Thy state. 2 Not Sinai's mountain could appear More glorious when the Lord was there; While He pronounced His dreadful law, And struck the chosen tribes with awe. 3 How bright the triumph none can tell, When the rebellious powers of hell, That countless souls had captive made. Were all in chains, like captives, led. Raised by His Father to the throne, He sent the promised Spirit down, With gifts and grace for rebel men, That God might dwell on earth again.
182 God is gone up with a shout.-Ps.
10 FOR a shout of sacred joy,
3 While angels shout and praise their
4 Rehearse His praise with awe profound,
5 In Israel stood His ancient throne;
THE SECOND COMING OF
183 The Lord Jesus shall be revealed
from heaven.-2 Thess. 1, 7.
1 THE Lord shall come! the earth shall quake;
The mountains to their centre shake; And, withering from the vault of night, The stars shall pale their feeble light.
2 The Lord shall come! but not the same As once in lowliness He came:
A silent Lamb before His foes,
3 The Lord shall come! a dreadful form, With rainbow wreath and robes of storm,
On cherub wings, and wings of wind;
