Hymn/Song Information

Wake not O mother sounds of lamentation




Wake not, O mother, sounds of lamentation!
Weep not, O widow; weep not hopelessly!
Strong is his arm, the bringer of salvation;
Strong: is the word of God to succor thee.


Bear forth the cold corpse; slowly, slowly bear him
Hide his pale features with the sable pall:
Chide not the sad one wildly weeping near him;
Widowed and childless, she has lost her all.


Why pause the mourners? who forbids their weeping?
Who the dark pomp of sorrow hath delayed?
"Set down the bier, he is not dead, but sleeping;
Young man, arise!" He spake, and was obeyed.


Change, then, O sad one, grief to exultation;
Worship, and fall before Messiah's knee.
Strong was his arm, the bringer of salvation;
Strong was the word of God to succor thee.
