When The Savior Had Arisen

When the Savior had arisen
From the silent grave,
Then He to His loved disciples
This commandment gave:

“Go ye, therefore, teach the nations
Of the risen Son;
Tell them of the great redemption
Sent to everyone.”

“Tell them of the night of sorrow,
In Gethsemane;
Show to them the weary footprints,
Up to Calvary.” [Refrain]

“Go and tell them how I loved them,
Even on the tree,
How I thought of them with pity,
In death’s agony.” [Refrain]

Now to us this message cometh,
From the sinner’s Friend,
With the promise, “I am with you,
Even to the end.” [Refrain]
