When The Lord Was Crucified

When the Lord was crucified,
All the earth was wrapp’d in gloom;
But today ’tis glorified,
Christ is risen from the tomb.

Christ is risen from the dead,
Christ is risen, as He said,
And He lives on high,
No more to die,
Christ is risen from the dead.

Those who sought the Master’s grave,
Found the stone was roll’d away;
And rejoic’d while praise they gave,
Where they thought to weep and pray. [Chorus]

Now the reign of sin is o’er,
For the Saviour dwells above;
Whence He rules for evermore,
With the sceptre of His love. [Chorus]
