1 Woman, weeping in the garden,
who has pushed the stone aside?
Who has taken Jesus' body;
Jesus Christ, the crucified?
2 Woman, waiting in the garden,
after men have come and gone;
after angels give their witness,
silently you watch the dawn.
3 Woman, walking in the garden,
Jesus takes you by surprise;
when the gardener call you, "Mary!"
faith and joy meet in your eyes.
4 Woman weeping in the garden,
weeping for joy, for you have seen
Jesus, the Messiah, risen;
Christ, of whom the prophets dream.
5 Woman, dancing from the garden,
find the others and proclaim
Christ is risen as he promised;
tell the world he knew your name!
