Representative Text

1 Come we ‘neath the shrouded skies,
Come ‘mid silent gloom,
Seek the garden where He lies,
Seek the sealed tomb.
But hark! But hark!
An angel tells the tidings glad!

Refrain:
Up from the grave He arose!
He arose, He arose!
Conqu’ror He reigns o’er His foes,
And He liveth, liveth evermore!
He hath ended strife,
He hath brought us life,
Lo, He lives for aye,
Hail the triumph day!
He arose, He arose, He arose!
Hallelujah, Christ arose!

2 Soft the sighing breezes call,
O’er the quiet glade;
Shadows cast their sombre pall,
Where the Lord is laid.
But hark! But hark!
An angel tells the tidings glad! [Refrain]

3 Hearts grow faint and joy is fled,
Light of hope burns dim;
Lo, the Nazarene lies dead,
Come we seeking Him.
But hark! But hark!
An angel tells the tidings glad! [Refrain]
