Mary and her friends arrived early on the Sunday morning
The sun was up, the sky was clear and the birds were announcing the dawning.
At the entrance to the tomb sat a young man dressed in white
He was fair of face and had a manner so bright.
Raising his hand to the women he said “Sisters you are too late
He is gone, he is risen he has gone to his father in the high estate.”
Mary was upset where was her son she needed his body there were rights to be done.
The tomb was empty only a shroud left behind
No hint of his whereabouts could they find.
Rejoice said the angel rejoice and pleased
He is now with his father from all his worldly pains relieved.
Mary and her friends then all began to smile
Jesus had risen proving the truth they had known all the while.
Rejoice Rejoice he has risen above rejoice, rejoice we have been saved by his love.
