Resting from His work Today


Resting from His work today
In the tomb the Savior lay;
Still He slept, from head to feet
Shrouded in the winding sheet,
Lying in the rock alone,
Hidden by the seald stone.

Late at even there was seen
Watching long the Magdalene;
Early, ere the break of day,
Sorrowful she took her way
To the holy garden glade,
Where her buried Lord was laid.

So with Thee, till life shall end,
I would solemn vigil spend:
Let me hew Thee, Lord, a shrine
In this rocky heart of mine,
Where in pure embalmd cell,
None but Thou may ever dwell.

Myrrh and spices will I bring,
True affections offering;
Close the doors from sight and sound
Of the busy world around;
And in patient watch remain
Till my Lord appear again.
