HYMN 22. Second Part. C.M.
A prospect of the resurrection. (cont.)

  6 How will our joy and wonder rise,
   When our returning King
Shall bear us homeward thro' the skies,
   On love's triumphiint wing!

HYMN 22. Third Part. C.M.
Life everlasting.

  1 AMAZING grace! how sweet the sound,
   That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
   Was blind, but now I see.
  2 'Twas grace, that taught my heart to fear,
   And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear.
   The hour I first believ'd!
  3 Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
   I have already come;
'Tis grace, has brought me safe thus far,
   And grace will lead me home.
  4 The Lord has promis'd good to me,
   His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
   As long as life endures,
  5 Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
   And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess within the veil,
   A life of joy and peace.
  6 There joys unseen by mortal eyes,
   Or reason's feeble ray,
In ever blooming prospects rise,
   Unconscious of decay.
  7 Then now, on faith's sublimest wing,
   Let ardent wishes rise,
To those bright scenes, where pleasures spring
   Immortal in the skies.

HYMN 22. Fourth Part. C.M.
Hope of heaven.

  1 WHAT have I in this barren land?
   My Jesus is not here;
Mine eyes will ne'er be blest, until
   My Jesus doth appear.
  2 My Jesus is gone up to heav'n,
   To fix a place for me;
For 'tis his will, that, where he is,
   His followers should be.
  3 Canaan I view from Pisgah's top:
   Of Canaan's grapes I taste;
My Lord, who sends them to me here,
   Will send for me at last.
  4 I have a God that changeth not;
   Why should I be perplex 'd?
My God, who owns me in this world,
   Will own me in the next.
  5 My dearest friends, they dwell above;
   Them will I go to see;
And all my friends in Christ below
   Will soon come after me.

HYMN 22. Fifth Part. C.M.
Happiness of departed Saints.

  1 HOW happy are the souls above,
   From sin and sorrow free!
With Jesus they are now at rest,
   And all his glory see !
  2 "Worthy the Lamb," aloud they cry,
   "That brought us here to God:"
In ceaseless hymns of praise they shout
   The virtue of his blood.
  3 Sweet gratitude inspires their songs,
   Ambitious to proclaim.
