Hallelujah! And all glory

To the risen worthy One;

Who defeated death and rose again

As the Father’s will was done.

All glory and all honour

As the stone was rolled away,

And the linen cloths were left behind

In the empty tomb that day.

It was several of Christ’s disciples

One was Mary Magdalene;

Who visited the tomb that day

And marvelled at what was seen.

The body simply was not there

As a miracle occurred;

As He was resurrected from the dead

T’was their precious sacred Lord.

The entrance to the tomb

With a large stone it was sealed;

That two angels did indeed remove

As the resurrection was revealed.

Although the tomb was sealed

And by the guards was monitored;

God’s power did manifest

When the angels were Spirit led.

Because no bribe or deceit

From the soldiers can prevail;

Irrespective of the sum of money

Which they received to tell a tale.

The stone’s been rolled away

As the hardness of our heart;

With all unbelief and unforgiveness

God chisels and sets apart.

He heals our broken soul

As we rely and trust in Him;

The Resurrected and Anointed One

Who saves our soul within.
