5 The Spirit rais’d my Saviour up

When number'd with the dead;
And, spite of death and hell, shall raise

All for whose sins be bled. 6 Awake, ye saints, that dwell in dust,

Your hymns of vict'ry sing ;
And let his dying servants trust

Their ever living 'king.

578. The sympathy of Christ with his

people an encouragement to them to come to the throne of grace. C.M.

For we have not an High Priest which cannot be touched

with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. HEB. iv. 15, 16.

WITH joy we meditate the grace

Of our High Priest above:
His heart is made of tenderness,

His bowels melt with love.
2 Touch'd with a sympathy within,

He knows our feeble frame;
He knows what sore temptations mean,

For he has felt the same.
3. But'spotless, innocent, and pure,

The great Redeemer stood;
While Satan's fiery darts he bore,

And did resist to blood.

4 He in the days of feeble flesh

Pour'd out his cries and tears; And in his measure feels afresh

What every member bears. 5 He'll never queneh the smoking, flax,

Buť raise it to a ffame;
The bruised reed he never breaks,.

Nor scorns the meanest name.-
6 Then let our humble faith address

His mercy and his power;
We shall obtain deliv'ring grace

In the distressing hour.

579. The midnight cry. 148th. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten vir.

gins which took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom...... The wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps...... And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold the bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet him ...... And they that were ready went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut.-MAT.xxv. 1, 4, 6, 10.

YE virgin souls, arise!
With all the dead awake;
Unto salvation wise,

Oil in your vessels take;
Upstarting at the midnight cry,
Behold your heav'nly Bridegroom nigh.
2 He comes, he comes, to call:

The nations to his bar;
And take to glory all

Who meet for glory are:
Make ready for your free reward;
Go forth with joy to meet your Lord

3 Go, meet him in the sky,

Your everlasting friend;
Your head to glorify,

With all his saints ascend.; Admitted by his sov'reign 'grace, "To see, without a veil, his face. 4 Ye—that have here received

The unction from above,
*And in his Spirit liv'd,

And thirsted for his love; „Jesus shall claim you for his 'bride,

Rejoice with all the sanctified. 5 Rejoice in glorious hope

Of that great day unknown,
When you shall be caught up

To stand before his throne! Call’d to partake the marriage feast,

And lean on our IMMANUEL's breast, 6 The everlasting doors

Shall soon the saints receive,
Above those angel powers

In glorious joy to live;
Far from a world of grief and sin,
With God eternally shut in.
7 Then let us wait to hear

The trumpet's welcome sound;
To see our Lord appear,

May we be watching found, Enrob'd in righteousness divine, in which the bride shall ever shine.

1. L.M. PRAISE God, from whom all blessings

flow; Praise Him, all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host, Praise FATHER, Son, and Holy Ghost.

2. C.M. TO Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

The God whom we adore, Be glory, as it was, is now, And shall be evermore.

3. 8-7.

2 Cor. xii. 14. MAY the grace of CHRIST Our SAVIOUR,

And the FATHER's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favour;

Rest upon us from above!

may we abide in union
With each other and the LORD;
And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth cannot afford.

4. 8–7–4. FATHER, Son, and Holy Spirit,

Thou the God whom we adore;
May we all thy love inherit;

To thine image us restore;
Vast Eternal!
Praises to thee evermore.
