Hymn/Song Information

Uprising from the darksome tomb




Uprising from the silent tomb,
See the victorious Jesus come!
Th' Almighty Captive quits the pris'n,
And angels tell "the Lord is risen."


Ye mourning saints, no longer grieve;
Hear the glad tidings and believe:
God's holy law is satisfied,
And justice now is on your side.


When ye in guilt's dark dungeon lay,
Mercy cried "spare," and justice, "slay;"
But Jesus answered, "Set them free,
Forgive their guilt, and punish me."


Your surety now before your God
Pleads the rich ransom of his blood;
No new demand, no bar remains,
But mercy all triumphant reigns.


Believers, bless your risen head,
The first-begotten from the dead;
Your resurrection's sure through his,
To endless life and boundless bliss.
