Pierced and nailed him to the tree,
Shall the true Messiah see.
3 Every island, sea, and mountain,
HYMN 463. C. M. Lanesboro'. [b]
THR HROUGH sorrow's night, and danger's path, Amid the deepening gloom, We, soldiers of an injured King, Are marching to the tomb.
2 There, when the turmoil is no more, And all our powers decay, p Our cold remains in solitude
Shall sleep the years away.
3 Our labours done, securely laid
-4 Yet not thus lifeless, thus inane, The vital spark shall lie;
For o'er life's wreck that spark shall rise
5 These ashes too, this little dust, Our Father's care shall keep,
o Till the last angel rise and break The long and dreary sleep.
p 6 Then love's soft dew o'er every eye
And the long silent dust shall burst
H. K. WHITE.
HYMN 464. C. M. Archdale. [*]
The Resurrection of the Christian.
8 1 MY faith shall triumph o'er the grave,
And trample on tombs : My Jesus, my Redeemer lives,
My God, my Saviour comes;
In power and glory great;
e 2 Then though the worms my flesh devour, And make my form their prey,
I know I shall arise with power,
On the last judgment day:
3 Then his own hand shall wipe the tears
And pains, and groans, and griefs, and fears,
o How long, dear Saviour! O, how long Shall this bright hour delay!
s O, hasten thy appearance, Lord, And bring the welcome day.
HYMN 465. C. M. St. Ann's. [* or b]
e 1 ESUS, to thy dear wounds we flee,
-Assured that all who trust in thee
u 2 Then let the thundering trumpet souna,
e The mountains melt; the solid ground Dissolve as liquid air;
o 3 The huge celestial bodies roll, Amidst that general fire,
And shrivel as a parchment scroll,
-4 Yet still the Lord, the Saviour reigns,
And no created thing remains
5 Sublime upon his azure throne,
6 So be it! let this system end, This ruined earth and skies; s The New Jerusalem descend, The New Creation rise.
7 Thy power omnipotent assume;
HYMN 466. 7 & 6.
Nature's end we wait to see,
TAND th' omnipotent decree;
-2 Rests secure the righteous man,
Like flames o'er nature's funeral pyre; Triumphs in immortal powers,
And claps his wings of fire! o 3 Nothing hath the just to lose,
By worlds on worlds destroyed; Far beneath his feet he views,
With smiles, the flaming void; Sees this universe renewed;
The grand millennial reign begun, Shouts with all the sons of God, Around th' eternal throne!
4 Resting in this glorious hope,
To earthquake, plague, or sword;
The last trumpet of the seven :
HYMN 467. P. M. Luther's Hymn. [*]
The end of things created!
HYMN 468. 7s. Lincoln. [*] 1 [ARK! that shout of rapturous joy,
Jesus comes!-and through the sky,
2 Hark! the trumpet's awful voice
3 See! the Lord appears in view:
HYMN 469. C. M.
1 LIFT up to God the voice of praise,
Whose breath our souls
Loud and more loud the anthems raise,
2 Lift up to God the voice of praise,
3 Lift up to God the voice of praise,
Who sent his Son our souls to save
4 Lift up to God the voice of praise,
Which lights through darkest shades of death,
HYMN 470. 7s. Sudbury. [*]
Glory to God in the Highest.
2 Songs of praise awoke the morn,
3 Heaven and earth must pass away, Songs of praise shall crown that day: God will make new heavens and earth, Songs of praise shall hail their birth. p 4 And shall man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious morning come? s No! the church delights to raise Psalms, and hymns, and songs of praise. 5 Saints below, with heart and voice, Still in songs of praise rejoice, Learning here, by faith and love, Songs of praise to sing above.
6 Borne upon their latest breath, Songs of praise shall conquer death; Then, amidst eternal joy,
Songs of praise their powers employ. PRATT'S COL.

Our God for ever and ever.

HYMN 472. C. M. Amherst. [*]
FOR a thousand
To bless th' incarnate Word!
O for a thousand thankful songs
