                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Morning breaks upon the tomb;
        Jesus scatters all its gloom.
        Day of triumph through the skies;
        See the glorious Savior rise.

        2. Ye who are of death afraid
        Triumph in the scattered shade.
        Drive your anxious cares away;
        See the place where Jesus lay.

        3. Christians, dry your flowing tears
        Chase your unbelieving fears;
        Look on His deserted grave,
        Doubt no more His power to save.
