Hymnal: Hymns, Selected and Original #146 (1828) Meter: 18.104.22.168 Lyrics: 1 Ye humble souls, that seek the Lord,
Chase all your fears away;
And bow with pleasure 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 throbb'd and bled for you!
3 A moment give a loose to grief;
Let grateful sorrows rise;
And wash the bloody stains away,
With torrents from your eyes.
4 Then dry your tears, and tune your songs,
The Saviour lives again!
Not all the bolts and bars of death
The Conqu'ror could detain.
5 High o'er th' angelic bands he rears
His once dishonor'd head;
And thro' unnumber'd years he reigns,
Who dwelt among the dead,
6 With joy like his, shall ev'ry saint
His empty tomb survey;
Then rise with his ascending Lord
Thro' all his shining way. Topics: Christ Resurrection, Ascension, Intercession and Glory; The resurrection of Christ a source of Consolation
Ye humble souls, that seek the Lord
