Eden R. Latta


In the dim and early morning,
As the day begins to dawn,
To the sepulcher approaching,
Loving hearts are drawing on.


He is risen as He said;
He is risen from the dead;
He is risen as He said,
Risen, risen from the dead.

They are seeking for the Savior
In the dampness and the gloom;
But He slumbers there no longer;
They approach an empty tomb.


Oh, how sadly do they question,
As in sorrow on they stray!
But behold the shining angel,
He has rolled the rock away!


Weep no more, ye sad disciples,
Your Redeemer ye shall see;
He is risen as He promised;
Seek for Him in Galilee.
