1 Adieu to every fear!
The tomb is empty now!
Ye need not seek Him here!
The tomb is empty now!

He reigns, He reigns in Heav’n,
In Heav’n today, today;
A crown upon His brow!
His brow! The shadows flee,
The shadows flee away!
Away! The tomb is empty now!

2 In death He closed His eyes!
The tomb is empty now!
By faith I see Him rise!
The tomb is empty now! [Refrain]

3 Behold where He was laid!
The tomb is empty now!
Our debt of sin He paid!
The tomb is empty now! [Refrain]

4 In Him our hopes we place!
The tomb is empty now!
And we shall see His face!
The tomb is empty now! [Refrain]
