He Is Not Here, But Is Risen

I.
Oh, day of awful story– Jesus in dead!
Sad end to hope for glory– Jesus is dead!

Chorus:
Behold the stone is rolled away!
And shining ones have come to say:
“He is not here, but is risen! He is not here, but is risen!”
The night of death is past and gone–
Arise; and greet the glorious morn!–
“He is not here, but is risen! He is not here, but is risen!”

II.
A weary night of weeping– Jesus is dead!
A night knew no sleeping– Jesus is dead!

(Back to Chorus)

III.
A day in sorrow dawning– Jesus is dead!
A sad and gloomy morning– Jesus is dead!

(Back to Chorus)
