1  Ye humble souls that seek the Lord,
 Chase all your fears away;
 And bow with rapture down to see
 The place where Jesus lay.

2  Thus low the Lord of life was brought,
 Such wonders love can do;
 Thus cold in death that bosom lay,
 Which throbbed and bled for you.

3  Then raise your eyes and tune your songs;
 The Saviour lives again:
 Not all the bolts and bars of death
 The Conqueror could detain.

4  High o'er th'angelic bands he rears
 His once dishonoured head;
 And through unnumbered years he reigns,
 Who dwelt among the dead.
