Lyrics

Come, see the place where Jesus lay;
Believe, and cast thy fears away:
For thee He lives; for thee He died;
Lives thee to bless, lives thee to guide.
Hallelujah!

Oh tell to Him thy every grief:
He lives to yield thine ills relief—
To close in death thy wearied eyes,
And lift thy spirit to the skies.
Hallelujah!

Oh come; let us together sing
The triumph of our heavenly king:
The Lord is risen, to die no more:
O earth! O Heaven! your God adore.
Hallelujah!
