An Easter Hymn: The rock was no longer in place

The rock was no long in place,

dark and still the morning came;

Mary’s weeping tear-stained face

filled with sad-ness and deep pain:

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!

The Lord called Mary by name.

“Peace be with you,” Jesus is a-ris-en

said to doubting Thomas one

evening. “Touch-ing’s not for-bid-den,”

said the Sav-iour to him, “come.”

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!

My Lord, my God, you have won!

Then he came and stood a-mong them,

they were filled with fear and doubt;

tak-ing a broil-ed fish, he then

ate. “Know now what I’m a-bout.”

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!

Christ is with us, sing and shout!
