Scripture: Acts 2:32
1 Like the golden sun ascending, Breaking through the gloom of night,
On the earth his glory spending So that darkness takes to flight,
Thus my Jesus from the grave And death's dismal, dreadful cave
Rose triumphant Easter morning At the early purple dawning.
2 Thanks to you, O Christ victorious! Thanks to you, O Lord of life!
Death now has no power o'er us, You have conquered in the strife.
Thanks because you did arise And have opened paradise!
None can fully sing the glory Of the resurrection story.
3 For my heart finds consolation And my fainting soul grows brave
When I stand in contemplation At your dark and dismal grave;
When I see where you did sleep In death's dungeon dark and deep,
Yet you broke all bonds asunder, Should I not rejoice and wonder?
4 Though I am by sin o'ertaken, Though I lie in helplessness,
Though I am by friends forsaken And must suffer great distress,
Though I am without a friend, And by all the world condemned,
Though the dark grave yawn before me, Yet the light of hope shines o'er me.
