In full assembly meet,
To wait His high commands,
And worship at His feet;
Joyful they come, and wing their way,
From realms of day, to Jesus' tomb.

Hark! as they soar on high,
What music fills the air!
Their anthems say,- Jesus, who bled,
Hath left the dead, He rose to-day.'

4. Ye mortals, catch the sound,

Redeemed by Him from hell;
And send the echo round

In

The globe on which you dwell;
Transported cry,- Jesus who bled,
Hath left the dead, no more to die.
5. All hail, triumphant Lord,

Who sav'st us with Thy blood!
Wide be Thy name adored,

Thou, rising, reigning God.
With Thee we rise, with Thee we reign,
And empires gain beyond the skies.

And angels chant the solemn lay:
"Lift up your heads, ye heavenly gates!
Ye everlasting doors! give way."

3. Loose all your bars of massy light,

And wide unfold the ethereal scene; He claims these mansions as His right; Receive the King of glory in.

4. "Who is the King of glory, who?"—

The Lord that all our foes o'ercame; That sin, and death, and hell o'erthrew; And Jesus is the Conqueror's name.

5. Lo! His triumphal chariot waits,

And angels chant the solemn lay:"Lift up your heads, ye heavenly gates! Ye everlasting doors! give way."

6. "Who is the King of glory, who?"

The Lord of boundless power possessed;
The King of saints and angels too;
God over all, for ever blessed.

1. HAIL! morning known among the blest,Morning of hope, and joy, and love,— Of heavenly peace, and holy rest,

Pledge of the endless rest above.

2. Blest be the Father of our Lord,

Who from the dead hath brought His Son,
Hope to the lost was then restored,
And everlasting glory won.

When Christ arose-unsetting sun-
The dawn of joy's eternal day.

4. Mercy looked down with smiling eye,
When our Immanuel left the dead;
Faith marked His bright ascent on high,
And Hope, with gladness, raised her head.

5. Descend, O Spirit of the Lord!

Thy fire to every bosom bring,
Then shall our ardent hearts accord,
And teach our lips God's praise to sing.

262. L. M.

1. HOSANNA to the living Lord!
Hosanna to th' incarnate Word!
To Christ, Creator, Saviour, King,
Let earth, let heaven, Hosanna sing.

2. Hosanna, Lord! Thine angels cry;
Hosanna, Lord! Thy saints reply:
Above, beneath us, and around,
The dead and living swell the sound.

3. O Saviour! with protecting care,
Return to this, Thy house of prayer:
Assembled in Thy sacred name,
Here we Thy parting promise claim.

4. But, chiefest, in our cleansed breast,
Eternal! bid Thy Spirit rest,
And make our secret soul to be
A temple pure, and worthy Thee!

5. So, in the last and dreadful day,

When earth and heaven shall melt away,
Thy flock, redeemed from sinful stain,
Shall swell the sound of praise again.

HEBER.
