1. Oh, day of awful story—
Jesus is dead!
Sad end to hope of glory—
Jesus is dead!

Refrain
Behold the stone is rolled away!
And shining ones have come to say:
He is not here, but is risen!
He is not here, but is risen
The night of death is past and gone—
Arise, and greet the glorious morn!
He is not here, but is risen!
He is not here, but is risen!

2. A weary night of weeping—
Jesus is dead!
A night that knew no sleeping—
Jesus is dead! [Refrain]

3. A day in sorrow dawning—
Jesus is dead!
A sad and gloomy morning—
Jesus is dead! [Refrain]
