Christ My Song - 223
Morning breaks upon the tomb
(William Bengo Collyer/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Morning breaks upon the tomb.
2. Christians, dry your flowing tears,
chase those unbelieving fears;
look on his deserted grave;
doubt no more his power to save.
3. Ye who are of death afraid,
triumph in the scattered shade:
drive your anxious cares away;
see the place where Jesus lay.
4. So the rising sun appears,
shedding radiance o'er the spheres;
so returning beams of light
chase the terrors of the night.
William Bengo Collyer, in: Philip Schaff: Christ in Song, 1870, 218.
