The birds were awakened and started to sing
as the lillies burst out in bloom.
Something special was taking place
as the stone rolled away from the tomb.
A sadness had fallen over the land
hugh clouds had dakened the skies.
But now a new morning was a breaking
THE SON was about ready to rise.
Death and the grave had now been conquered
He held the keys in His hand.
A sweet smell of fragrance filled the room
He had kept His promise to man.
If we were to venture to that tomb
because of an act on a hill.
Nothing has changed in two thousand years
it lies empty and barren still.
Jesus now gives us hope of eternal life
He proved it when He walked from the tomb.
Never looking back He ascended to heaven
He is now waiting to return for us soon.
