7 Praise God, who gave His only Son
To be for sinners slain,
7. Chandler. (tr. *)
WE sing the praise of Him who died,
Of Him who died upon the Cross ;
For this we count the world but loss.
Inscribed upon the Cross we see,
In shining letters, “ God is Love;”
He brings us mercy from above.
3 The Cross ! it takes our guilt away ;
It holds the fainting spirit up;
And sweetens every bitter cup ;
4. It makes the coward spirit brave,
And nerves the feeble arm for fight;
And gilds the bed of death with light:
5 The balm of life, the cure of woe,
The measure and the pledge of love,
1 Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee !
Not the labours of my hands,
3 Nothing in my hand I bring ;
Simply to Thy Cross I cling ;
4 While I draw this fleeting breath,
When my eyestrings break in death,
A. M. Toplady. 86.
Gloria, laus, et honor.
To Christ our Heavenly King;
His Royal Name to sing.
" Hosanna! to great David's Son ;'
Their tender voices cry :
Which angels chant on high:
“ For ever blessed be our King,
Who cometh in God's Name,
To bear our sin and shame.”
4. With fresh-cut palms, and garments spread,
They strew the Conqueror's way:
Observe the festal day.
5 They bless the Saviour's dying love,
In mercy's gracious hour.
6 And Thou wilt clothe us all alike
In robes of spotless white;
Before Thy throne of light.
7. Then glory, praise, and honour be
To Christ, our Saviour King :
St. Theodulph. W. E. Green. (tr.,
RIDE on! ride on in majesty !
O'er captived death and conquered sin. 3 Ride on ! ride on in majesty !
The angel armies of the sky
To see the approaching Sacrifice. 4. Ride on ! ride on in majesty!
The last and fiercest strife is nigh:
Expects His own anointed Son. 5 Ride on ! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp, ride on to die :
Prone vocem, mens, canoram.
Which our Saviour,
He the ruthless scourge enduring,
Ransom for our sins to pay,
Bore our sorrows,
3 He to liberty restored us
By the very bonds he bare,
Us they fasten
4 When His painful life was ended,
Then the spear transfixed His side,
This to cleanse us,
