Resurrection and Eternal Life. 169
Prisoner, long detained below ;
Prisoner, now with freedom blest; Welcome from a world of woe,
Welcome to a Land of Rest! Thus the choir of angels sing,
As they bear the soul on high, While with hallelujahs ring
All the regions of the sky.
Grave, the guardian of our dust!
Grave, the treasury of the skies f Every atom of thy trust
Rests in hope again to rise. Hark ! the Judgment trumpet calls :
Soul, rebuild thy house of clay, Immortality thy walls,
And Eternity thy day !
Variation. [1812.] From James Montgomery. 1803,
Deathless principle, arise ! Soar, thou native of the skies ; Pearl of price, by Jesus bought, To His glorious likeness wrought!
Go, to shine before His throne ; Deck his mediatorial crown ; Go, His triumphs to adorn ; Made for God, to God return !
Lo, He beckons from on high ! Fearless to His presence fly ! Thine the merit of His Blood ; Thine the Righteousness of God.
