Ye humble souls that seek the Lord

1.YE humble souls that seek the Lord,
Chase all your fears away;
And bow with rapture down to see
The place where Jesus lay.

2.Thus  low  the  Lord  of Life was brought,
Such wonders love can do;
Thus cold in death that bosom lay,,
Which throbbed and bled for you.

3.But raise your eyes and tune your songs;
The Saviour lives again :
Not all the bolts and bars of death
The Conqueror could detain.

4.High o'er the angelic bands He rears
His once dishonoured head;
And  through   unnumbered   years He reigns,
Who dwelt among the dead.

5.With Joy like His shall every saint
His vacant tomb survey;
Then rise with his ascending Lord
To realms of endless day.
