ORIGINAL POETRY. COME, SEE THE PLACK WHElH JESUS LAY." MATT. XXVIII. BY A CHURCHMAN. With drooping heart, by sorrow rent, Her steps the weeping Mary bent, Ere twilight yet had merged in day, To see the place where Jesus lay. Close to the tomb, enrobed in white, An jangel's form burst on her sight And he had rolled the stone away Which barred the place where Jesus lay. No roclcy doors could stay his flight, No guards enchain him with their might; But lo a seraph's voice doth say- Come, see the place where Jesus lay." Why seek ye," thus the angel said, The living 'nujngst the silent de;id The Grave nor Death could bid him stay, Coine, see the place where JesQs lay." Like sweetest music was that strain,— «' He is not here. but risen again;" Gladly doth she his voice obey, And sees the place where Jesus lay. 0 grant us faith, 0 Lord, that we May look with joy to Calvary; And often in the garden stray. To see the place where Jesus lay. THE RESURRECTION. BY THE SAME. (From the Collect for the Day.) Death where is thy boasted sting ? Grave! say where thy victory ? Christ is now the Victor-King, All his foes before him flee. By the blood from Jesu's side All our sins are washed away He the gate has opened wide, Leading to eternal day. Pray we, Lord, that by the grace Thou delightest to bestow, Thou would'st go before our face, Keep us from all ill below. Fill our minds with good desires, Breathe on us thy blessing, Lord Lo! each heart to thee aspires, Now thy Spirit's aid affotd. Through our Saviour Christ we pray, Through thine only Son we plead Hear us for his sake, and may He supply our every need. Now with thee he lives and reigns, Father, Spirit.—Holy Three,— Where thy praise, in sweetest strains, Fills all heaven with harmony. Merthyr.
