Come at the dawn to the silent garden
Brightly beams the morning sun
Come at the dawn to the silent garden
See what wonder the Lord hath done!

Come to the tomb in the silent garden
Lo! the stone is rolled away
Linger in awe, for the tomb lies empty
See the place where his body lay.

He is risen! He is risen! risen unto endless life
Weep no more in the silent garden
Death is swallowed up in Christ.

Seek him no more in the silent garden
Seek him not among the dead
Find him in glory among the living
Risen even as he said.

Victory is wrought in the silent garden
Joy is born of an empty tomb
Sing for the morning of our salvation
Christ hath brought us life anew.

He is risen! He is risen! risen unto endless life
Weep no more in the silent garden
Death is swallowed up in Christ.
