HOW calm and beautiful the morn
That gilds the sacred tomb,
Where once the crucified was borne,
And veiled in midnight gloom!
O, weep no more, the Saviour slain;
The Lord is risen, he lives again.

Ye mourning saints, dry every tear
For your departed Lord,
"Behold the place, he is not there."    
The tomb is all unbarred;
The gates of death were closed in vain;
The Lord is risen, he lives again.

Now cheerful to the house of prayer
Your early footsteps bend,
The Saviour will himself be there,
Your advocate and friend;
Once by the law your hopes were slain,
But now in Christ you live again.
