1. Lone Mary comes at early morn,
0 where have they her loved one borne?
And while she wonders through her tears
The risen Lord himself appears.
2 Perplexed disciples search the tomb;
Angelic forms the grave illume,
The vision speaks in accents dread,
Why seek the living mid the dead?
3 The Master joins at close of day
Two sad companions by the way;
And waits for Peter by the shore
lb fill his heart with joy once more.
4 All now the wondrous truth proclaim,
And tell the glory of his name,
Because they see their own dear Lord
To full and glorious life restored.
