1 Easter Day hat dawn'd again,
Past the night of grief and pain,
Vain the guard, the tomb in vain,
To hold our buried Jesus!

2 Faithful hearts their watch have kept,
Loving eyes have mourned and wept,
Where, it seemed, He lately slept,
So still and silent, Jesus!

3 Now, all tears have passed away
With the early morning ray;
From the grave, where once He lay,
There hath arisen Jesus!

4 On this blessed Even-tide,
Two there were He walked beside,
And they prayed--"With us abide?"
Although they knew not Jesus!

5 Jesus, Lord! I pray to Thee,
Though Thy Face not yet I see,
Evermore abide with me -
My Lord - my God - my Jesus!
