Resurrection and Ascension.
Angel! roll the rock away;
Death! yield up thy mighty prey;
See! he rises from the tomb,
Glowing with immortal bloom.
2 'Tis the Savior; angels! raise
Fame's eternal trump of praise:
Let the world's remotest bound
Hear the joy-inspiring sound.
3 Shout! ye saints! in rapturous song,
Let the strains be sweet and strong;
Shout the Son of God, this morn
From his sepulcher new-born.
4 Heaven displays her portals wide;
Glorious Hero! through them ride!
King of glory! mount the throne --
Thy great Father's and thine own.
Thomas Scott, 1772.
