5 The balm of life, the cure of woe,

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

2 Late at even there was scen

Watching long the Magdalene;
Early, ere the break of day,
Sorrowful she took her way
To the holy garden glade,
Where her buried Lord was laid.

3 So with Thee, till life shall end,

I would solemn vigil spend:
Let me hew Thee, Lord, a shrine
In this rocky heart of mine,
Where in pure embalmed cell
None but Thou may ever dwell.

4 Myrrh and spices will I bring,

True affection's offering;
Close the door from sight and sound
Of the busy world around;
And in patient watch remain
Till my Lord appear again. Amen.

2 Earth her joy confesses, clothing her for spring,

All fresh gifts returned with her returning King:
Bloom in every meadow, leaves on every bough,
Speak His sorrow ended, hail His triumph now.

Welcome, happy morning! etc.
3 Months in due succession, days of lengthening light,

Hours and passing moments praise Thee in their flight;
Brightness of the morning, sky and fields and sea,
Vanquisher of darkness, bring their praise to Thee.

Welcome, happy morning! etc.
4 Maker and Redeemer, life and health of all;

Thou from heaven beholding human nature's fall,
Of the Father's Godhead true and only Son,
Manhood to deliver, manhood didst put on.

Welcome, happy morning! etc.
5 Thou, of life the Author, death didst undergo,

Tread the path of darkness, saving strength to show;
Come, then, True and Faithful, now fulfil Thy word,
'Tis Thine own third morning! rise, O buried Lord!

Welcome, happy morning! etc.
6 Loose the souls long prisoned, bound with Satan's chain;

All that now is fallen raise to life again;
Show Thy face in brightness, bid the nations see;
Bring again our day-light: day returns with Thee!
Welcome, happy morning! etc. Amen.

VENANTIUS FORTUNATUS. Tr. JOHN ELLERTON 169
