His cheering message from the grave




His cheering message
from the grave
An angel to the women gave:
“Full soon your Master ye shall see;
He goes before to Galilee.”


But while with flying steps
they press
To bear the news, all eagerness,
Their Lord, the living Lord,
they meet,
And prostrate fall to kiss His feet.


So when His mourning
followers heard
The tidings of that faithful word,
Quick went they forth to Galilee,
Their loved and lost
once more to see.


On that fair day of Paschal joy
The sunshine was without alloy,
When to their very eyes restored
They looked upon the risen Lord.


The wounds before
their eyes displayed
They see in living light arrayed,
And that they see they testify
In open witness fearlessly.


O Christ, the King of gentleness,
Our several hearts
do Thou possess,
They we may render all our days
Thy meed of
thankfulness and praise.


Maker of all, to Thee we pray,
Fulfill in us Thy joy today;
When death assails,
grant, Lord, that we
May share Thy Paschal victory.


To Thee Who, dead,
again dost live,
All glory, Lord, Thy people give;
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.
