,7,83. Cong: Christ is risen from the dead,

Thou shalt rise too, saith my Saviour,
Of what should I be afraid?

I with him shall live for ever;
Can the head forsake his limb,

And not draw me unto him?
I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord; he
that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall
he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me, shall
never die.

Therefore, blessed are the dead, which die in the Lord from henceforth ; yea, saith the Spirit, that they may

rest from their labors. ily O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy

victory? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of

sin is the law; but thanks be to God, which giveth us he the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. T.580. Cong. This body now to rest convey'd,

Into the earth like Jesus' laid,

Like his shall rise again,
Christ soon in glory will appear,
Then

we,

and these interred here,

With him v'er death shall ever reign.* We poor sinners pray, Hear us, gracious Lord and God'!

And keep us in everlasting fellowship with our brother (sister) N. N. whose remains we here inter, and with the whole church triumphant, and let us once rest with him (her) in thy presence from all our labor.

Amen. Our late brother (sister) desired to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better; and he (she) shall never taste death, but attain unto the resurrection of the dead ; for this body, which he (she) hath put off, this grain of corruptibility, shall put on incorruption. His (her) flesh here rests in hope.

The Father and the Son, who quicken whom they will, and the Spirit of him, who raised up Jesus from the dead, will also quicken this body, because the Spirit of God hath dwelt in it.

Amen,
T. 22. Cong. The Saviour's blood and righteousness

My beauty is, my glorious dress;
Thus well array'd,

I need not fear,
When in his presence I appear.
* During the singing of this verse, the corpse is laid into the grave,

None of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to him self, for whether we live, we live unto the Lord, and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's; for to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

Blessed and holy is he, that hath part in the first resurrection ; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ. -3 7. 58. Cong. The Spirit and the bride of Christ say: come;

Let ev'ry one that heareth answer: come;
Amen, come, Lord Jesus; come, we implore thee;
With longing hearts we now are waiting for thee,

Come soon, o come! Glory be to Him who is the Resurrection and the Life, who vivifieth us as long as we are dying: and after we have obtained the true life, doth not suffer us to die any more.

Glory be to Him in the church which waiteth for Him, and in that which is around Him; for ever and ever, Amen. Not The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and

i live the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with us all. Amen.

O Father; accept us as thy children in thy beloved Son, live

Jesus Christ, who came forth from thee, and came into the World, was made flesti, and dwelt among us, took on him the form of a seryant, and hath redeemed us, lost and undone human creatures, from all sin and from death with

his holy and precious blood, and with his innocent sufferfors

ing and dying'; to the end that we should be his own, and werp in his kingdom live under him and serve him, in eternal

tighteousness, innocence, and happitiess : so as he is risen from the dead, liveth and reigneth world without end.

Therefore, blessed are the dead which dié in the Lord from henceforth : yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors.

Whosoever liveth and believeth in Christ, shall never Life, die

, for he is the Resurrection and the Life, and went to at prepare a place for us, and will come again, atid receive us

unto himself, that where he is, there we may be also.

Meanwhile tone of us liveth to himself, and no mian ,

dieth to himself, for whether we live, we live unto the Lord, and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether

we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's; for to this end Fen Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be

Lord both of the dead and living.

Blessed and holy is he, that hath part in the first resurrection ; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory? Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ. * T. 14. Cong. Now to the earth let these témains*

In hope conimitted be,
Until the body chang'd obtains

Blest immortality
We poor sinners pray, Hear us, gracious Lord and God !

And keep us in everlasting fellowship with our brother (sister) (or with this child) Ň. N. whose remains we here inter, and with the whole church triumphant, and let us once rest with him (her) in thy presence from all our labor,

(* As touching children, Jesus saith; “Suffer little chil. dren to come unto me, and forbid thein not, for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”).

We desire to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better: we shall never taste death; and we shall attain unto the resurrection of the dead; for the body, which we shall put off, this grain of corruptibility, shall puron incorruption : our flesh shall rest in hope.

The Father and the Son, who quicken whom they will, itler and the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead, will also quicken this body, because the Spirit of God hath dwelt in it.
