Behold the women walking to the tomb,
Bearing for Jesus� body sweet perfume;
They wonder who will roll away the stone�
And still to us the future is unknown.
The Son has risen on the Resurrection Day,
The light of heaven now is driving night away;
Christ Jesus reigns,
He broke sin�s binding chains,
He won for you and me;
The empty tomb
Has banished gloom,
I�ll ever sing,
For Christ is King,
And heaven�s spring shall stay.
Mary is weeping, for her Lord is gone,
Over her understanding mist is drawn;
But Jesus, risen, first to Mary came�
Myst�ry departs when Jesus speaks my name.
Thomas the blessed news cannot believe
Until the Wounded One he can perceive;
By faith keep trusting through the longest night�
Blessed we�ll be when faith is turned to sight.
