657. The Son Has Risen

1 Behold the women walking to the tomb,
Bearing for Jesus’ body sweet perfume;
They wonder who will roll away the stone—
And still to us the future is unknown.

Refrain:
The Son has risen on the Resurrection Day,
The light of heaven now is driving night away;
Christ Jesus reigns,
He broke sin’s binding chains,
The victory
He won for you and me;
The empty tomb
Has banished gloom,
I’ll ever sing,
For Christ is King,
And heaven’s spring shall stay.

2 Mary is weeping, for her Lord is gone,
Over her understanding mist is drawn;
But Jesus, risen, first to Mary came—
Myst’ry departs when Jesus speaks my name. [Refrain]

3 Thomas the blessed news cannot believe
Until the Wounded One he can perceive;
By faith keep trusting through the longest night—
Blessed we’ll be when faith is turned to sight. [Refrain]
