[ From the Latin of St. Bernard.J
I Of him who did salvation bring
I could forever think and sing:
Arise, ye needy, he'll relieve;
Arise, ye guilty, he'll forgive.
2 Ask but his grace, and lo, 'tis given!
Ask, and he turns your hell to heaven:
Though sin and sorrow wound my soul,
Jesus, thy balm will make it whole.
3 To shame our sins he blushed in blood,
He closed his eyes to show us God:
Let all the world fall down and know-
That none but God such love can show.
4 'Tis thee I love, for thou alone
I shed my tears and make my moan!
Where'er I am, where'er I move,
I meet the object of thy love.
5 Insatiate to this spring I fly:
I drink, and yet am ever dry:
Ah! who against thy charms is proof?
Ah! who that loves can love enough ?
"120 The Lord is Risen. 7s.
[Tune, Pleyel's Hymn, page 85. 7s.J
I Christ, the Lord, is risen to-day,
Sons of men and angels say;
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens,—and earth, reply.
2 Love's redeeming work is done;
Fought the fight, the battle won:
Lo! the sun's eclipse is o'er;
Lo! he sets in blood no more.
3 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ has burst the gates of hell;
Death in vain forbids his rise;
Christ hath opened paradise.
4 Lives again our glorious King;
Where, O Death, is now thy sting?
( hice he died our souls to save;
Where's thy victory, boasting Grave?
5 Soar we now where Christ has led,
Following our exalted Head :
Made like him, like him we rise;
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies.
I What equal honors shall we bring
To thee, O Lord our God, the Lamb,
When all the notes that angels sing
Are far inferior to thy name?
2 Worthy is he that once was slain,
The Prince of life, that groaned and died:
Worthy to rise, and live, and reign
At his almighty Father's side.
3 Power and dominion are his due
Who stood condemned at Pilate's bar:
Wisdom belongs to Jesus too,
Though he was charged with madness
4 All riches are his native right,
Yet he sustained amazing loss:
To him ascribe eternal might,
Who left his weakness on the cross.
