Hymn/Song Information

Around Thy grave Lord Jesus Thine empty




Around Thy grave, Lord Jesus,
Thine empty grave, we stand,
With hearts all full of praises,
To keep Thy blest command;
By faith, our soul’s rejoicing,
To trace Thy path of love
Through death’s dark, angry billows,
Up to the throne above.


Lord, Jesus, we remember
The travail of Thy soul,
When, in Thy love’s deep pity,
The waves did o’er Thee roll,
Baptized in death’s cold waters,
For us Thy blood was shed;
For us Thou, Lord of Glory,
Wast numbered with the dead.


Oh, Lord, Thou now art risen,
Thy travail all is o’er!
For sin Thou once has suffered,
Thou liv’st to die no more;
Sin, death, and hell are vanquished
By Thee, the Church’s Head;
And lo! We share Thy triumphs,
Thou First-born from the dead.


Into Thy death baptizèd,
We own with Thee died;
With Thee, our life, we’re risen,
And in Thee glorified;
From sin, the world, and Satan,
We’re ransomed by Thy blood,
And now would walk as strangers,
Alive with Thee to God.
