260. L. M.

When Christ arose-unsetting sun 2. There His triumphal chariot waits,

The dawn of joy's eternal day.
And angels chant the solemn lay: 4. Mercy looked down with smiling eye,
"Lift up your heads, yo heavenly gates! When our Immanuel left the dead;
Ye everlasting doors! give way.”

Faith marked His bright ascent on high, 3. Loose all your bars of massy light,

And Hope, with gladness, raised her head. And wide unfold the ethereal scene;

5. Descend, O Spirit of the Lord ! He claims these mansions as Ilis right;

Thy fire to every bosom bring,
Receive the King of glory in.

Then shall our ardent hearts accord, 4. “Who is the King of glory, who?"

And teach our lips God's praise to sing. The Lord that all our foes o'ercame;

WARDLAW. That sin, and death, and hell o'ertlırew; And Jesus is the Conqueror's name.

262. L. M. 5. Lo! His triumphal chariot waits,

1. HOSANNA to the living Lord ! And angels chant tho solemn lay:

Hosanna to th' incaruate Word! "Lift up your heads, ye lieavenly gates! To Christ, Creator, Saviour, King, Ye everlasting doors! give way."

Let carth, let heaven, Hosanna sing. 6. “Who is the King of glory, who?" 2. Hosanna, Lord! Thine angels cry;

The Lord of boundless power possessed; Hosanna, Lord! Thy saints reply:
The King of saints and angels too;

Above, beneath us, and around,
God over all, for ever blessed.

The dead and living swell the sound.
C. WESLEY.

3. O Saviour! with protecting care,
261. L. M.

Return to this, Thy house of prayer:

Assembled in Thy sacred name, 1. Harli morning known among the blest, Morning of hope, and joy, and love,

Here we Thy parting promise claim. Of heavenly peace, and holy rest,

4. But, chiefest, in our cleansed breast, Pledge of the endless rest above.

Eternal ! bid Thy Spirit rest,

And make our secret soul to be 2. Blest be the Father of our Lord,

A temple pure, and worthy Thee!
Who from the dead hath brought His Son,
Hope to the lost was then restored,

5. So, in the last and dreadful day,
And everlasting glory won.

When carth and heaven shall melt away,

Thy flock, redeemed from sinful stain, 3. Scarce morning twilight had begun

Sball swell the sound of praise again.
To chase the shades of night away,

HEBER

267. C. M.
2. Jesus, our God, ascends on high ;

His heavenly guards around
Attend Him rising through the sky,

With trumpets' joyful sound. 3. While angels shout and praise their King,

Let mortals learn their strains;
Let all the earth his honor sing;-

O'er all the earth he reigns. 4. Rehearse his praise, with awe profound;

Let knowledge lead the song;
Nor mock Him with a solemn sound

Upon a thoughtless tongue.
5. In Israel stood His ancient throne: -

He loved that chosen race;
But now He calls the world His own;

The heathen taste His grace.

Dear Saviour, let me call Thee mine;

I can not wish for more.
5. On Thee alone, my hope relies;

Beneath Thy cross I fall,
My Lord, my Life, my Sacrifice,
My Saviour, and my All.

MRS. STEELE. 269. C. M. 1. The head that once was crown'd with thorpe

Is crowned with glory now;
A royal diadem adorns

The mighty Victor's brow.
2. The highest place that heaven affords,

Is His by sovereign right;
The King of kings, and Lord of lords,

He reigns in glory bright;-
3. The joy of all who dwell above,

The joy of all below,
To whom He manifests His love,

And grants Ilis name to know.
4. To them, the cross, with all its shame,

With all its grace is given;
Their name, an everlasting name,

Their joy—the joy of heaven.
5. They suffer with their Lord below,

They reign with Him above;
Their profit and their joy to know

The mystery of His love.
6. To them the cross is life and health,

Though shame and death to Him;
His people's hope, His people's wealth,
Their everlasting theme.

268. C. M.
1. TRIUMPIANT, Christ ascends on high,

The glorious work complete ;
Sin, death, and hell, low vanquished lie,

Beneath His awful feet.
2. There, with eternal glory crowned,

The Lord, the Conqueror reigns;
His praise the heavenly choirs resound,

In their immortal strains.
3. Amid the splendors His throne,

Unchanging love appears;
The names He purchased for His own

Still on His heart He bears.
4. O, the rich depths of love divine !

Of bliss, a boundless store:
