Resurrection and Eternal Life. 163
Lord, from Nature's gloomy night Turn we to the Gospel's light ; Thou didst triumph o'er the grave, Thou wilt all Thy people save ; Ransom'd by Thy Blood, the just Rise immortal from the dust.
John Hampden Gurney. 1838.
O God, Thy grace and blessing give To us, who on thy Name attend,
That we this mortal life may live Regardful of our journey's end.
Teach us to know that Jesus died. And rose again, our souls to save;
Teach us to take Him as our Guide, Our Help from childhood to the grave.
Then shall not death with terror come, But welcome as a bidden guest,
The herald of a better home, The messenger of peace and rest
And, when the awful signs appear Of Judgment, and the Throne above
Our hearts still fix'd, we shall not fear, God is our trust; and God is Love.
Dearest of names, our Lord, our King ! Jesus, Thy praise we humbly sing : In cheerful songs we'll spend our breath, And in Thee triumph over death.
