Resurrection and Eternal Life. 171
Mount, their transports to improve ; Join the longing choir above ; Swiftly to their wish be given ; Kindle higher joy in Heaven !
Such the prospects that arise To the dying Christian's eyes ; Such the glorious vista faith Opens through the shades of death.
A ugustus Mon tague Toplady. 1777*
Happy soul ! thy days are ended,
All thy mourning days below ; Go, by angel guards attended,
To the sight of Jesus go ! Waiting to receive thy spirit,
Lo, the Saviour stands above, Shews the purchase of His merit,
Reaches out the crown of love !
Struggle through thy latest passion
To thy dear Redeemer's breast, To His uttermost salvation,
To His everlasting rest! For the joy He sets before thee,
Bear a momentary pain ; Die, to live the life of glory ;
Suffer, with thy Lord to reign !
Ckarles Wesley. 1749.
