Hymn 156
1. Come, all ye sons of grace, and view
Your bleeding Saviour's love to you;
Behold him sink with heavy woes,
And give his life to save his foes.

2. When you behold the sacred wave,
You see the emblem of his grave:
Come, all who would his laws obey,
And view the place where Jesus lay.

3. But not Death's adamantine chain
Could long the mighty Lord detain;
Behold him cheer the heavy gloom,
And rise refulgent from the tomb.

4. When you ascend above the flood,
Then call to mind the Son of God;
Ye saints, lift up your joyful eyes,
Exulting see your Saviour rise.

5. Fresh from the stream, and filled with love,
Far from the tents of guilt remove,
Nobly from strength to strength proceed,
And rise to every worthy deed.
