1. Come, ye saints, look here and wonder
See the place where Jesus lay:
He has burst His bands asunder;
He has borne our sins away;
Joyful tidings, joyful tidings,
Yes, the Lord has ris’n today,
Yes, the Lord has ris’n today!
2. Jesus triumphs! sing ye praises
By His death He overcame;
Thus the Lord His glory raises,
Thus He fills His foes with shame;
Sing ye praises, sing ye praises,
Praises to the victor’s name,
Praises to the victor’s name!
3. Jesus triumphs! countless legions
Come from Heav’n to meet their king;
Soon, in yonder blessèd regions,
They shall join His praise to sing:
Songs eternal, songs eternal,
Shall through Heav’n’s high arches ring,
Shall through Heav’n’s high arches ring!

Come, ye saints, look here and wonder. T. Kelly. [Easter.] First published in 3rd ed. of his Hymns, &c, 1809, No. xvii., in 3 stanzas of 6 lines, and based upon Mark xvi. 6, "Behold the place where they laid Him." It was repeated in his Hymns adapted for Social Worship, Dublin, 1812, No. xxvii. For the 1812 work the text was slightly altered in each stanza, and these alterations, with one exception, noted below, were subsequently adopted as the authorized text. It is given in Snepp's Songs of Grace & Glory, No. 256, with "blessed regions" for happy regions, in stanza iii., line 3; “blessed regions " is the original reading, and was restored to the text by the author. It is in somewhat extensive use. In Boardman's Selection of Hymns, (1907), Philadelphia, 1860, it is given as "Come, ye saints, draw nigh and wonder;" and in the Hymn Book of the Evangelical Association, Cleveland, Ohio, 1882, as "Come, ye saints, behold and wonder."
