Ye sons and daughters of the Lord The




Ye sons and daughters of the Lord!
The king of glory, king adored,
this day himself from death restored.
|: Alleluia! :|


All in the early morning grey
went holy women on their way
to see the tomb where Jesus lay.
|: Alleluia! :|


Of spices pure a precious store
in their pure hands those women bore,
to anoint the sacred body o’er.
|: Alleluia! :|


Then straightaway one in white they see,
who saith, ‘Ye seek the Lord, but he
is risen, and gone to Galilee.
|: Alleluia! :|


This told they Peter, told they John:
who forthwith to the tomb are gone,
but Peter is by John outrun.
|: Alleluia! :|


The self-same night, while out of fear
the doors were shut, their Lord most dear
to his apostles did appear.
|: Alleluia! :|


But Thomas, when of this he heard,
was doubtful of his brethren’s word:
wherefore again there comes the Lord.
|: Alleluia! :|


‘Thomas, behold my side.’ saith he:
‘My hands, my feet, my body see,
and doubt not, but believe in me.’
|: Alleluia! :|


When Thomas saw that wounded side,
the truth no longer he denied:
‘Thou art my Lord and God!’ he cried,
|: Alleluia! :|


Now let us praise the Lord most high,
and strive his name to magnify
on this great day, through earth and sky.
|: Alleluia! :|


Whose mercy ever runneth o’er,
whom saints and angel hosts adore;
to him be glory evermore.
|: Alleluia! :|
