CHRIST'S RESURRECTION




Jesus leaves his throne on high,
To save a ruined race;
Lo, he condescends to die,
And take the sinner’s place:
In deep slumbers see him borne
To the tomb, but soon he wakes;
On the third the glorious morn,
Death’s iron bands he breaks.


Soldiers at the entry stand,
The sacred place to guard;
But behold, the time’s at hand,
The tomb must be unbarred:
Angels roll the stone away,
While the watchers’ eyes are sealed,
Death reluctant yields his prey,
And Jesus stands revealed.


Raise, ye saints, your joyful eyes,
The victory is yours;
Jesus endless bliss secures:
He the first-fruits from the grave,
Gives a pledge of all to come:
Trust in him, whose power to save
Shall bring you safely home.
