Hymn/Song Information

Ye humble souls that seek the Lord Chase all your




Ye humble souls, that seek the Lord,
Chase all your fears away;
And bow with rapture down to see
The place where Jesus lay.


Thus low the Lord of life was brought;
Such wonders love can do:
Thus cold in death that bosom lay,
Which throbbed and bled for you.


A moment now indulge your grief:
Let grateful sorrows rise;
And wash the crimson stains away
With torrents from your eyes.


But raise your eyes, and tune your songs,
The Saviour lives again:
Not all the bolts and bars of death
The Conqueror could detain.


High o'er the angelic bands he rears
His once dishonoured head;
And through unnumbered years he reigns,
Who dwelt among the dead.


With joy like his shall every saint
His vacant tomb survey;
Then rise with his ascending Lord
To realms of endless day.


---Alternative verses---


Ye humble souls, that seek the Lord,
Chase all your fears away;
And bow with pleasure down to see
The place where Jesus lay.


With joy like his shall every saint
His vacant tomb survey;
Then rise with his ascending Lord
Through all his shining way.


With joy like his shall every saint
His empty tomb survey;
Then rise with his ascending Lord
Through all his shining way.
