Matthew 28: 1-6
1. In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
4. And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
He hath burst His bonds in twain;
Christ is Risen! Christ is risen!
Alleluia! Swell the strain!
Four our gain He suffer'd loss By divine decree.
He hath died upon the cross, But our God is He.
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
He hath burst His bonds in twain;
Christ is Risen! Christ is risen!
Alleluia! Swell the strain! Alleluia, Amen.
