The day of resurrection dawns

The day of resurrection dawns

as angels wait beside the grave;

not to awake a sleeping world

but waiting to declare: “He saves”


For women in the early light

and men hid in an upper room,

where grief has blotted out the hope,

a dawning light invades the gloom.


So hearts that broke hear cries of joy

as now the angel voices say:

“He has been raised, he is not here,

but goes before you on the way.”


Where darkness ruled the Christ light shines:

The Prince of Peace has ransacked death.

His victory is ours by grace,

his freedom claims our every breath.

Tune: Church Triumphant
