Eden R. Latta (1839-1915)

In the dim and early morning,
As the day begins to dawn,
To the sepulcher approaching,
Loving hearts are drawing on.

Refrain

He is risen as He said;
He is risen from the dead;
He is risen as He said,
Risen, risen from the dead.

They are seeking for the Savior
In the dampness and the gloom;
But He slumbers there no longer;
They approach an empty tomb.

Refrain

Oh, how sadly do they question,
As in sorrow on they stray!
But behold the shining angel,
He has rolled the rock away!

Refrain

Weep no more, ye sad disciples,
Your Redeemer ye shall see;
He is risen as He promised;
Seek for Him in Galilee.
