He is risen, as He said…Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6
Words: George C. Hugg, On Wings of Song (Philadelphia: George C. Hugg, 1896), number 213. Also see Risen. Some sources give the lyricist as
See, the seal is rudely broken!
Lo! the stone is rolled away!
Kept is every sign and token;
He is risen! angels say.
He is risen! He is risen!
See the place where Jesus lay!
Angels herald joyous tidings:
Christ, the Lord, arose today!
Lo! the tomb is standing open,
And the Marys weeping near;
Angel tongues within are spoken:
He is risen; do not fear!
Hark! the joyful tidings ringeth;
Christ hath triumphed o’er the grave!
Joy to all His foll’wers bringeth;
Christ hath risen!—lives to save!
