1. In Joseph's lovely garden
The Lord Christ's tomb was made.
And there His broken body
To rest was gently laid.
A great rock strongly sealed it,
That Death might have full sway;
But God sent down His angel,
To roll the stone away.

2. When dawn was faintly breaking
Across the garden fair,
Three women entered weeping,
Bearing spices rare.
Then sake the guardian angel,
In shining raiment bright,
He whom ye seek is risen,
And Death is vanquished quite!

3. O angel of the garden,
Descend to us today,
And comfort all our sadness,
And drive death's fear away.
We all are sorrow laden
Seak to our hearts we pray,
"He who ye love is risen,
And lies with Christ alway!

4. O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
All praise to Thee we bring;
No power of death could hold Thee,
Our Saviour, Lord, and King!
As Thou hast ris'n all glorious,
MAy we one day arise,
O'er sin and death victorious,
In Thy blest Paradise.
