203. Morning Breaks upon the Tomb

1 Morning breaks upon the tomb;
Jesus scatters all its gloom.
Day of triumph thro' the skies;
See the glorious Savior rise.

2 Ye who are of death afraid
Triumph in the scattered shade.
Drive your anxious cares away;
See the place where Jesus lay.

3 Christians, dry your flowing tears
Chase your unbelieving fears;
Look on His deserted grave,
Doubt no more His pow'r to save.

Amen.
