There was a great earthquake, for the angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.@Matthew 28:2-3

As broke the long and heavy night,
While trembling guards fell with affright,
An angel fair, in garments white,
Came down where Jesus lay;
An angel fair, in garments white,
And rolled the rock away,
And rolled the rock away,
And rolled the rock away.

And Christ arose and left the tomb,
The grave He robbed of all its gloom,
And earth put on her robes of bloom,
To greet again her Lord;
And earth put on her robes of bloom,
To greet again her Lord;
To greet again her Lord,
To greet again her Lord.

And so our tributes glad we bring,
And sweetest carols do we sing,
In praise of Christ, our victor king,
This resurrection day;
In praise of Christ, our victor king,
This resurrection day,
This resurrection day,
This resurrection day.
