Lyrics: . <br/>1. Come, see the place where Jesus lay, <br/>And hear angelic watchers say, <br/>“He lives, who once was slain: <br/>Why seek the living 'midst the dead? <br/>Remember how the Saviour said <br/>That He would rise again.” <br/> <br/>2. O joyful sound! O glorious hour, <br/>When by His own almighty pow'r <br/>He rose and left the grave! <br/>Now let our songs His triumph tell, <br/>Who burst the bands of death and hell, <br/>And ever lives to save. <br/> <br/>3. The first begotten of the dead, <br/>For us He rose, our glorious Head, <br/>Immortal life to bring; <br/>What though the saints like Him shall die, <br/>They share their leader’s victory, <br/>And triumph with their King. <br/> <br/>4. No more they tremble at the grave, <br/>For Jesus will their spirits save, <br/>And raise their slumb'ring dust <br/>O risen Lord, in Thee we live, <br/>To Thee our ransomed souls we give, <br/>To Thee our hearts entrust.
