Rise, heart; thy Lord is risen. Sing His praise Without delayes. G. Herbert. [Easter.] This is Herbert's quaint and beautiful hymn for Easter, published in The Temple, 1633, in 3 stanzas of 6 lines and 3 st. of 4 1. (see reprints of The Temple). The hymn in the Baptist Psalms & Hymns, 1858:—
“Rise heart! thy Lord arose
With the first morning ray,"
by G. Rawson (see his Hymns, 1876, p. 190), was suggested by this lyric by G. Herbert. From Herbert's hymn st. iv.-vi. have also been used as a separate piece as, "I got me flowers to straw Thy way." This form is in Martineau's Hymns, 1840, &c.
