Representative Text

1 They laid Him in the tomb,
They closed it with a stone,
And in the deep and heavy gloom
They left their Lord alone.
Then broke the Easter day;
"Fear not," an angel said,
Behold the place where Jesus lay;
He liveth who was dead.

2 He tarried forty days
With those He did most love;
He taught them of His Father’s ways
And then He went above.
Christ rose, and we shall rise
When death’s short sleep is past;
Lord, lift our hearts to yonder skies,
And take us there at last.
