He is Risen

After the Sabbath

As the sun rose in the east

Mary Magdalene

And the other Mary went

To see the tomb of Jesus

Keepers of the tomb

Stood in trepidation

As the earth trembled

An immense stone was removed

By an angel of the Lord

With raiment as snow

And countenance as lightning

The angel conveyed

Today the Lord has risen

Come see the place where he lay

The women were told

To go tell his disciples

He has conquered death

So they ran to Galilee

Jesus met them on their way

In adoration

The women embraced his feet

Then the eleven

Met him on the mountaintop

Some worshiped and some doubted

Jesus came to them

Saying all authority

In heaven and earth

Has been given unto me

Make disciples of nations

By baptizing them

In the name of the Father

The name of the Son

And of the Holy Spirit

Teach them to obey my will

Surely I will be

With you even to the end
