Mary To The Saviour’s Tomb
Hasted At The Early Dawn;
Spice She Brought, And Sweet Perfume,
But The Lord She Loved Had Gone:
For A While She Lingering Stood,
Filled With Sorrow And Surprise;
Trembling, While A Crystal Flood
Issued From Her Weeping Eyes.

Jesus Who Is Always Near,
Though Too Often Unperceived,
Came Her Drooping Heart To Cheer,
Kindly Asking Why She Grieved:

Though At First She Knew Him Not,
When He Called Her By Her Name,
She Her Heavy Griefs Forgot,
For She Found Him Still The Same.

And Her Sorrows, Quickly Fled,
When She Heard His Welcome Voice;
Christ Had Risen From The Dead,
Now He Bids Her Heart Rejoice:
What A Change His Word Can Make—
Turning Darkness Into Day;
You Who Weep For Jesus’ Sake,
He Will Wipe Your Tears Away.
