1 Comes Mary to the grave:
no singing bird has spoken,
nor has the world awoken,
and in her grief all love lies lost
and broken.

2 Says Jesus at her side,
no longer Jesus dying,
'Why, Mary, are you crying?'
She turns, with joy, 'My Lord! my love!'
replying.

3 With Mary on this day
we join our voices praising
the God of Jesus' raising,
and sing the triumph of that love
amazing.
