1. Fierce raged the tem-pest o'er the deep, Watch did Thine anxious serv-ants keep,

[blocks in formation]

Be Thou our Great Deliverer still,

Thou Lord of life and death;
Restore and quicken, soothe and bless

With Thine Almighty breath.
To hands that work and eyes that see

Give wisdom's heavenly lore,
That whole and sick, and weak and strong,
May praise Thee evermore. Amen.

1. We sing the praise of Him Who died, Of Him Who died up - on

the cross:

SO

The sinner's hope let men de - ride: For this we count the world but loss. A-men.

Inscribed upon the cross we see

In shining letters, God is love:
He bears our sins upon the tree;

He brings us mercy from above.

The cross-it takes our guilt away;

It holds the fainting spirit up;
It cheers with hope the gloomy day,

And sweetens every bitter cup.

It makes the coward spirit brave,

And nerves the feeble arm to fight;
It takes its terror from the grave,

And gilds the bed of death with light.

The balm of life, the cure of woe,

The measure and the pledge of love,
The sinner's refuge here below,
The angel's theme in heaven above. Amen.

Turn not from His griefs a-way, Learn of Je - sus Christ to

[merged small][ocr errors]

Follow to the judgment-hall;

View the Lord of life arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!

O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
Learn of Him to bear the cross.

Calvary's mournful mountain climb;

There, adoring at His feet,
Mark that miracle of time,

God's own sacrifice complete:
"It is finished,” hear Him cry;-

Learn of Jesus Christ to die.

Early hasten to the tomb,

Where they laid His breathless clay;
All is solitude and gloom,

Who hath taken Him away?
Christ is risen ;--He meets our eyes;

Saviour, teach us so to rise! Amen.
