Lyrics

A garden I know and a grave newly made,
And there in the evening my Jesus was laid.
In Joseph’s garden I long to be,
Where Jesus, my Jesus, lay dead for me,
Where Jesus, my Jesus, lay dead for me.

A garden I know where the white lily grows,
And there in the morning my Jesus arose.
In Joseph’s garden I long to be,
Where Jesus, my Jesus, lay dead for me,
Where Jesus, my Jesus, lay dead for me.
