Nor death in bondage to the foe,
Shall cause our life to fail..

4 Wake then a fong, the nobleft fong;
Let heav'n and earth rejoice,
The dead fhall live; the graves
Salvation, in thy voice.

fhall hear


Chrift, ever liveth to make Interceffion.
E lives, the great Redeemer lives,
(What joy the bleft affurance gives,
And now before his Father God,
Pleads the full merit of his blood.

2 Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And juftice arm'd with frowns appears;
But in the Saviour's lovely face
Sweet mercy fmiles, and all i ace.

3 Hence then, ye black defpairing thoughts,
Above our fears, above our faults,
His powerful interceffions rife,
And guilt recedes, and terror dies.
4 In ev'ry dark diftressful hour,
When fin and Satan join their pow'r ;
Let this dear hope repel the dart,
That Jefus bears us on his heart.

5 Great advocate, almighty friend;
On him our humble hopes depend:
Our cause can never, never fail,
For Jefus pleads, and muft prevail.

The laft Refurrection.

HE Ancient of eternal days,
Enthron'd in light's celeftial blaze,

With fhouting thousands comes.

The archangelick trump is blown,
A voice is heard from glory's throne.
The spirit breathes on ev'ry bone;
And rends the cleaving tombs.

2 Now comes the end; the end divine;
See death, and hell, their dead refign
To Chrift, who holds the keys :



The judgment fits; the books unfold;
The actions of a world they hold ;
And there Omniscience has enroll'd,
Myfterious, high decrees.

These books are clos'd. Then opens wide
The book of life; his book who died
For all who rofe again;

The writing in Immanuel's blood,
The fignet of the wine prefs trod,
Prevails for guilty man, with God:
A world rewards his pain.

Salvation to the Lamb on higu,
Salvation is the mighty cry;

The glorious work is done.

Tears, forrow, death, and anguish dire,
Like vifions of the night retire;

And extacy awakes the lyre

To Father, Spirit, Son!



Judgment brought forth unto Victory. 1LO! the man of God appointed,

Judge of quick and judge of dead,
Mid his Father's throne exalted,
High in glory lifts the head.

Shout triumphart, fing rejoicing, fhout trì 'Tis the Son, the Son of man.


2 He's the bringer forth of judgment,

Judgment bas'd on truth divine

See, before the bar arraigned,

Death and hell their pow'rs refign. Ranfom'd thousands, happy myriads, rifing Sound th' Almighty Saviour's name. [nations, 3 Where is fin, and death, and Satan? Triumph they? or triumphs God? Sin, and death, and hell, subdued,

Feel the Monarch's iron rod.


Whilft the nature, human nature,Christ affum

Is by him redeem'd and fav'd.

4 Hallelujah! hallelujah!

Glory be to God most high:

Hallelujah hallelujah!

Worlds below and worlds on high

Shout Redemption cry Salvation! praise the Praise, O praise ye him; Amen. [Saviour


The times of Refreshing.

N Zion his most holy mount,
God will a feaft prepare;

And Ifr'el's fons, and Gentile lands,
Shall in the banquet fhare.

2 Marrow and fatness are the food
His bounteous hand beftows:
Wine on the lees, and well'refin'd
In rich abundance flows.

3 See to the vileft of the vile,
A free acceptance giv'n!
See, rebels by adopting grace,
Sit with the heirs of heav'n!

4 The pain'd, the fick, the dying now
To eafe and health reftor'd,
With eager appetites partake
The plenties of the board.

5 But O, what draughts of blifs unknown, What dainties fhall be giv❜n,


When, with the myriads round the throne, We join the fealt of heav'n!

6 There joys immeafurably high,

Shall overflow the foul;

And fprings of life, that never dry,
In thoufand channels roil.

The Great Jubilee of Eternity.

*LOUD let the tuneful trumpet found,
And fpread the joyful tidings round;
Let ev'ry foul with transport hear,
And hail the Lord's accepted year.

2 Ye debtors whom he gives to know,
That you ten thousand talents owe,
When humble at his feet you fall,..
Your gracious God forgives them all.

3 Slaves, that have borne the heavy chain of fin and hell's tyrannic reign, Lod To liberty affert your claim,


urge the great Redeemer's name.
