Who rose again and went above,
That sinful ones, like me,
To all eternity.
My kindred and my race,
For riches of thy grace.
And joys — a mighty store,
Turn, O turn a pitying eye-Hear our solemn litany ! By the sacred grief that wept O'er the grave where Lazarus slept !; By the boding tears that flow'd 2 Over Salem's loved abode; By the anguish'd words that told, Treachery lurk'd within thy fold 3 ; From thy seat above the sky, Hear our solemn litany! By thine hour of dire despair, By thine agony of prayer 4, By the cross, the nail, the thorn, Piercing spear, and torturing scorn; By the gloom that veil'd the skies 5, O'er that dreadful sacrifice, Listen to our humble cry, Hear our solemn litany! By the deep expiring groan 6, By the sad sepulchral stone, By the vault whose dark abode Held in vain the rising God?; O! from earth to heaven restored Mighty re-ascended Lord, Listen, listen to the cry Of our solemn litany!

Their dire delight!

Clothe you with flowers;

How lovely! O how pleasant! when

Lament his fall!
And crown'd with peace;
Of war devour'd!
Of my torn heart!
To man, man bore !
Loved at that rate!

Nor stir till the morn arisel;

And the Angel of Vengeance shall pass you by, He shall see the red stain, and shall not come nigh
Where the hope of your household lies."
The people hear, and they bow them low
Each to his house hath flown;
And sprinkle the lintel-stone;
The judgment to be done.
Along the lone still street:
No tramp of unearthly feet,
'Mid her wan light clear and sweet.

A pale-blue flash was seen;
That such a thing had been :
And back flow'd every vein.
At the view of that awful light,
To shield them from its might:
On Egypt's land that night.
His shafts through thine empire wide,
No first-born of hers hath died
