3 O come, let us together sing,

The triumph of our heavenly King:
The Lord is risen to die no more ;
O earth, O heaven! your God adore.


A. T. Russell. First Sunday after Easter.

1 Christ the Lord is risen again !

Christ has broken every chain !
Hark, the Angels shout for joy,
Singing evermore on high,

Hallelujah! 2 He who gave for us His life,

Who for us endured the strife,
Is our Paschal Lamb to-day;
We too sing for joy, and say:

Hallelujah! 3 He who bore all pain and loss

Comfortless upon the Cross
Lives in glory now on high,
Pleads for us and hears our cry :

Hallelujah! 4. He who slumbered in the grave

Is exalted now to save;
Now through Christendom it rings
That the Lamb is King of kings.

Hallelujah! 5 Now He bids us tell abroad

How the lost may be restored,
How the penitent forgiven,
How we too may enter heaven.


6 Thou, our Paschal Lamb indeed,

Christ, to-day Thy people feed ;
Take our sins and guilt away,
That we all may sing for aye, -

R. Brethren. C. Winkworth. (tr.)



ESUS lives ! no longer now

Can thy terrors, Death, appal us;
Jesus lives! and this we know
Thou, O grave, canst not enthral us.

Hallelujah! 2 Jesus lives ! henceforth is death

But the gate of life immortal ;
This shall calm our trembling breath,
When we pass its gloomy portal.


3 Jesus lives ! for us He died ;

Then, alone to Jesus living,
Pure in heart may we abide,
Glory to our Saviour giving.


4 Jesus lives ! our hearts know well

Nought from us His love shall sever ;
Life, nor death, nor powers of hell
Tear us from His keeping ever.

Hallelujah! 5 Jesus lives ! to Him the Throne

Far above all power is given ;
May we go where He is gone,
Rest and reign with Him in heaven.


6 Praise the Father, praise the Son,

Who to us new life hath given :
Praise the Spirit—Three in One-
All in earth, and all in heaven.



1 COME, and let us drink of that New River,

Not from barren rock divinely poured,
But the Fount of Life that is for ever

From the sepulchre of Christ the Lord.


All the world hath bright illumination,-
Heaven, and earth, and things beneath the

earth :
'Tis the festival of all creation :

Christ hath risen, who gave creation birth.

3 Yesterday with Thee in burial lying,

Now to-day with Thee arisen I rise ;
Yesterday the partner of Thy dying,
With Thyself upraise me to the skies.

St. John Damascene. 7. M. Neale. (tr.)


[ocr errors]

JESUS, the Shepherd of the sheep,
Thy little flock in safety keep,
The flock for which Thou cam'st from Heaven,
The flock for which Thy life was given.

2 Thou saw'st them wandering far from Thee

Secure, as if from danger free;
Thy love did all their wanderings trace,
And brought them to a wealthy place.

3 O guard Thy sheep from beasts of prey,

guide them that they never stray ;
Cherish the young, sustain the old,
Let none be feeble in Thy fold !

4 Secure them from the scorching beam,

And lead them to the living stream ;
In verdant pastures let them lie,
And watch them with a Shepherd's eye!

5 O may Thy sheep discern Thy voice,

And in its sacred sound rejoice ;
From strangers may they ever flee,
And know no other guide but Thee !

6 Lord, bring Thy sheep that wander yet,

And let the number be complete :
Then let Thy flock from earth remove,
And occupy the fold above. Amen.

T. Kelly.


SAVIOUR, we would be Thy sheep,

Know Thy voice and follow Thee;
Deign our wandering souls to keep,

Then alone we safe can be.


Put us forth, that we may feed

In the pastures of Thy grace,
By refreshing waters, lead

To some sweet and sacred place. 3 Saviour, we would follow Thee

Wheresoever Thou wilt call;
Whether dark or bright it be,

Whatsoever may befal. 4 Through earth's bleak and rugged ways,

May we ever hear Thy voice ;
Then in danger we shall praise,

And in sorrow shall rejoice. 5 Never, Lord, from us depart;

Still defend us, keep, and guide,
Till we reach where now Thou art,

There for ever to abide. Amen.


į LORD, be Thou our strength in weakness;

Thou art ever strong to save,

Conqueror o'er the Cross and grave :
Grant us to endure with meekness.
