Subject(s): Easter; Holidays; Jesus Christ; Palm Sunday; Salvation; The Resurrection

ALMIGHTY God! whose blessed will was done
By Jesus Christ, our Lord, thine only Son;
Death overcome, and open'd unto men
The gate of everlasting life again;
Grant us, baptiz'd into his death, to die
To all affections, but to things on high;
That when, by thy preventing grace, we find
The good desires to rise within our mind,
Our wills may tend as thine shall still direct,
And bring the good desires to good effect;
Thro' Him, the one Redeemer from the fall,
Who liv'd and died, and rose again for all.
