"He is not here," the angel said
To Mary, who, with silent tread,
With weeping eyes and bowed down head,
Sought her Lord among the dead.

"The tomb is empty, come and see;
Your Lord's not here, oh, no, not He;
This is His tomb, and these His clothes,
But He's not here, for He has rose."

May we like Him -- our Savior rise
From things of low and weak disguise,
Rise from the trifling things of earth
To things of high intrinsic worth.

Rise from the world's perplexing strife
Unto a higher, nobler life;
A life from sin's pollution free,
A life of spotless purity!
