THE POWER OF CHRIST'S RESURRECTION




Come see the place where Jesus lay,
For he hath left his gloomy bed;
What angel rolled the stone away?
What spirit brought him from the dead?


By his omnipotence he rose,
By his own Spirit lived again,
To crush forever all his foes,
To raise for ever ruined men.


Those who his image here partake,
Though worms in dust their flesh consume,
Shall sleep in Jesus, and awake
To life eternal from the tomb.


What shall restore a world from death,
Where Satan holds his murderous reign?
Spirit of Jesus! with thy breath
Shake the dry bones, revive the slain.


Dead while they live are Adamís race,
By nature, since their Fatherís fall;
But lo! the messengers of grace
Proclaim the gospel-hope to all.


Hear it ye dead, of every clime,
before the second death begins;
Come forth to this new life in time,
This resurrection from your sins.


---Alternative verses---


Come see the place where Jesus lay,
For he hath left his silent bed;
What angel rolled the stone away?
What spirit brought him from the dead?


Those who his image here partake,
Though long in dust their flesh consume,
Shall sleep in Jesus, and awake
To life eternal from the tomb.
