A THIRD HYMN FOR THE KIRK.

1 UP, sluggard soul! awake and raise,
2 To thy blest Lord a song of praise,
3 Who lifts thee from the gloomy grave,
4 When low on earth thou liest,
5 To Him who lived and died to save,
6 Hosanna in the highest!
7 To Him, thy friend of friends, whose love
8 Invites thee to a home above,
9 When thou, the world's poor outcast slave
10 In grief and anguish criest,
11 To Him who lived and died to save,
12 Hosanna in the highest!
[Page 389]
13 His love a living stream hath found
14 For pilgrims faint, on barren ground,
15 Their parched and languid souls to lave,
16 When earthly streams are driest,
17 To him who lived and died to save,
18 Hosanna in the highest!
