WITNESSES OF THE RESURRECTION.

"Him God raised up, and showed him openly, not to all the people,

but unto witnesses chosen before of God.”

Ask we the cause so few,

The Lord of life who knew,
Beheld him, when from death he rose to view

The holy women, then
A
group

of faithful men, And last in Galilee a humble train :

Know, this was God's own way,

By which, his wrath to stay,
He proved if men would listen and obey :

Not in the people's sight,

Not in his risen might,
Not with a sudden blaze of heaven-sent light-

F

In silent power arose

From his three days' repose The Lord, the Saviour, startling friends and foes ;

He stood in flesh and bone,

Seen but by few, alone,
Himself the witness that the work was done !

He, who did thus appear

Of old in vision clear
To those who did in humble faith draw near,

Has promised to send down

His Spirit to his own, Till he shall come himself, their joy and crown.

JESUS THE LIFE OF THE WORLD.

“ The Life was manifested.”

Jesus, for ages long concealed,
Jesus, whom God the Father sealed,
Jesus, our Life, is now revealed!

They laid him in a manger-bed,
They crowned with thorns his holy head,
They took him to the tomb when dead.

Now, seated on a heavenly throne,
He wears an everlasting crown,
And Death and Hell has trampled down.

In every place, the world around, As men tell out the joyful sound, Blessings increase and joys abound.

Angels and saints, fall down before
Jesus, our Life, in this his hour
Of glory and Almighty power.

PRAISE TO THE LAMB.

• Worthy is the Lamb that was slain.”

Worthy to live and reign
The Lamb who once was slain,
Worthy of honour, worship, power,
From all for evermore.

'Tis he who intercedes
For us in all our needs,
'Tis he who, when we faint with fear,
Sends down the Comforter.

'Tis he who leads his own
By paths to them unknown,
That he may give them an abode
For ever with their God.
