May live alone to God: Our souls desire no other food, Thus we, supported by his might, But our Redeemer's flesh and blood, From strength to strength proceed; Which gives us life eternal. And, walking in his truth and light,

Praise him in word and deed. 131.*

He truly tasted death

For wretched fallen men; REJOICE, O church, the Saviour's In bitter pangs resign'd his breath; bride,

But now is ris'n again.
All grief and mourning lay aside:
With cheerful hearts and voices sirg

3 He hath himself the keys
The resurrection of our King.


Of death, the grave and hell;

His is the victory and praise,
2 He, having triumph'd over death,

And he rules all things well.
Now re-assumes his vital breath:

Death now no more I dread,
The angels wait with watchful eyes, But cheerful close mine eyes :
And joy to see their God arise. Death is a sleep, the grave a bed;
3 Our gracious Saviour, Head and Lord, With Jesus I shall rise.
Hath well perform’d his promis'd word;
And now would have his church rejoice;
He loves to hear her cheerful voice.

T. 11.
4 Let us then with the heav'nly throng GLORY unto Jesus be!
Now join in that eternal song:

From the curse he set us free;
• Salvation to our God and King,
Whose death did our redemption bring.' He the ransom fully paid.

All our guilt on him was laid,
5 Blessing and praise we give to thee,
That thou from death hast set us free; 2 All his glorious work is done;
Thy resurrection from the grave

God's well pleased in his Son;
Proves clearly thou hast pow'r to save.

For he rais'd him from the dead,

Christ now reigns, the church's Head.
6 Thy blood shall wash our garments

3 His redeem'd his praise show forth,
Then we, with all the saints in light, Ever glorying in his worth;
Shall joyful meet our Lord and Head, Angels sing around the throne,
We know for us thy blood was shed. “ Thou art worthy, thou alone !"
7 Astonish'd, at thy footstool low, 4 Ye who love him, cease to mourn,
With humble gratitude we bow: He will certainly return;
Our words can never fully tell All his saints with him shall reign;
What in our thankful hearts we feel! Come, Lord Jesus, come! Amen,

3 His church is still his joy and crown, Find in our Saviour, day and night,
He looks with love and pity down A source of comfort and delight;
On her he did redeem:

'Tis this makes life important,
Each member of his church he knows, 4 Hé pardon'd me, like Magdalen,
Heshares their joysand feels their woes,
And they shall ever reign with him. I love him, but it gives me pain)

I love him, my Preserver!

I love not with such fervor.

When Jesus I shall once behold,

I then shall feel as she of old,

Retakes his life and majesty ;
Praise him to all eternity.
