When writhing on the bed of pain,
I supplicate for rest in vain;
Still, still, my soul shall think on Thee,

Thy bloody sweat and agony.
4 And oh! when I have safely past

Through ev'ry conflict but the last;
Wilt Thou, who once for me hast bled,
In all my sickness make my bed ;
Then bear me to that happier shore,
Where thou shalt mark my woes no more?

[graphic]

Good-Friday.

HYMN XX. C. M. 1 FROM Calvary's cross, a fountain flows

Of water and of blood,
More healing than Bethesda's pool,

Or fam'd Siloam's flood.

2 The dying thief rejoic'd to see

That fountain in his day;
And there may sinners vile as he,

Wash all their guilt away. 3 Ne'er shall that fountain's sacred stream

Lose its all-cleansing pow'r,
Till the whole ransom'd Church of God

Be sav'd, to sin no more.

4 Jesus! the virtue of thy blood .

To all our souls apply; . Grant that to Thee we henceforth live,

Grant that to sin we die :5 Till, spotless plac'd at thy right hand,

Safe in the realms above, We cast our crowns before thy throne,

And sing the boundless love.

HYMN XXI. C. M.
i Come let us join our cheerful songs

With angels round the throne;
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one. 2 « Worthy the Lamb that died,” they cry,

“To be exalted thus:” “ Worthy the Lamb,” our lips reply,

“For He was slain for us.”

3 Jesus is worthy to receive

Honour and pow'r divine; And blessings, more than we can give,

Be, Lord, for ever thine. 4 Let all that dwell above the sky,

And air, and earth, and seas, Conspire to lift thy glories high,

And speak thine endless praise.

5 The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name
Of Him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.

HYMN XXII. S. M.
1 Not all the blood of beasts

On Jewish alters slain, : Could give the guilty conscience peace,

Or wash away the stain.
2 But Christ the heav'nly Lamb,

Takes all our sins away;
A sacrifice of nobler Name,

And richer blood than they. 3 Believing, we rejoice

To see the curse remove;
We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice,

And sing his heav'nly love.

Laster.

HYMN XXIII. C. M.
1 This day be grateful homage paid,

And loud Hosannahs sung:
Let gladness dwell in ev'ry heart,

And praise on ev'ry tongue. 2 O what a night was that which wrap'd

The heathen world in gloom!

M

O what a Sun, which broke this day

Refulgent from the tomb! 3 Ten thousand diff'rent tongues shall join

To hail this welcome morn, Which scatters blessings from its beams

On nations yet unborn.

HYMN XXIV. 7. 1 Jesus Christ is ris'n to day--Hallelujah!

Our triumphant holy-day;
Who did once upon the cross

Suffer to redeem our loss.
2 Hymns of praise then let us sing,

Unto Christ, our Heav'nly King;
Who endur'd the cross and grave,

Sinners to redeem and save.
3 But the pains which He endur'd

Our salvation have procur'd;
Now He reigns triumphant King,
Where the angels ever sing—Hallelujah!

Ascension.

HYMN XXV. 7.:
] Hall the day that sees Him rise,
Glorious to his native skies ! .
Christ, awhile to mortals given,
Enters now the highest heaven..

% There the glorious triumph waits ;

Lift your heads, eternal gates!
Christ hath vanquish'd death and sin,

Take the King of Glory in.
3 See, the heav'n its Lord receives !

Yet He loves the earth He leaves;
Though returning to his throne,
Still He calls mankind his own.

4. Still for us He intercedes;
His prevailing death He pleads;
Near Himself prepares our place,
Harbinger of human race.

HYMN XXVI. P. M.
1 COME, ye saints, unite your praises ;

Press around the Saviour's thronie:
Soon, we hope, the Lord will raise us
To the place where He is gone.
Meet it is, that we should sing,
“Glory,-glory to our King!"

2 King of Glory, reign for ever; ;

Thine the everlasting crown!
From thy love what pow'r shall sever
Those, whom Thou hast made thine

Happy objects of thy grace! [own?
Soon they hope to see thy face.
