1. "Lonely, heart-broken, I seek here my Jesus,
   Desolate, empty, the tomb where he lay!"
   "Nay, 'tis not empty, with angels 'tis filled,
   Life is triumphant this glad Easter Day!"
   Weep now no more, O cease from thy sorrows,
   Look up to Jesus, and not in the grave,
   Jesus is risen! He liveth alway,
   O'er death victorious, almighty to save!

2. "Angel, O Tell me, O where hast thou laid Him,
   That I may tenderly bear Him away?"
   "Death could not hold Him! He liveth again!
   Jesus is risen this glad Easter Day!"
   Cease from the grieving, let weeping be stilled;
   Precious the promise He now hath fulfilled;
   Joy is thy portion, both now and alway,
   Christ is arisen, He liveth for aye!

3. "Angel, O tell me, O where shall I find Him,
   That once again I may look on His face?"
   "Ever He's with Thee, close He's beside Thee,
   With love He'll uphold Thee and strengthen with grace."
   Master, we pray Thee to keep us o'er near Thee,
   Strong in our faith, secure in Thy love,
   And when our lives of glad service are ended,
   Bring us at last to Thy heaven above.
