Remember they came to the garden tomb
In the darkness before the mist.
Ah! The stone by then had been rolled away
What was the meaning of this
One of the white clad angels spoke
The Father has raised Him out.
He is not here but living
You do not need to doubt.
While they paused in wonderment
They confirmed that yes, He was dead.
And it’s true that they had laid
Him there But He is risen as He said.
I’m so glad the stone was rolled away
And they found no body there.
The message of the risen Lord
Is for everybody everywhere.
It proves what He so often taught
“I must die that you might live.”
God the Son hung on the cross
Because He chose His life to give.
