Printer-friendly version
CGS No.: 

Verse 1
On the Resurrection morning,
Soul and body meet again;
No more sorrow, no more weeping,
No more pain!

Verse 2
Here awhile they must be parted,
And the flesh its sabbath keep,
Waiting in a holy stillness,
Wrapt in sleep.

Verse 3
For a space the tired Body
Lies with feet toward the dawn;
Till there breaks last and brightest
Eastern morn.

Verse 4
But the soul in contemplation,
Utters earnest prayer and strong,
Bursting at the Resurrection
Into song.

Verse 5
Soul and body reunited
Thenceforth nothing shall divide,
Waking up in CHRIST's own likeness,

Verse 6
Oh! the beauty, Oh! the gladness
Of that Resurrection day,
Which shall not through endless ages
Pass away!

Verse 7
On that happy Easter morning
All the graves their dead restore;
Father, sister, child, and mother,
Meet once more.

Verse 8
To that brightest of all meetings
Bring us, JESUS CHRIST, at last;
To Thy Cross, through death and judgement,
Holding fast.
