1. Out of the night where hope had died, to tomb once sealed, now gaping wide,
The Magdalene made haste, to mourn, and bring her spices through the dawn.
2. She gazed in disbelief and pain where Jesus in his death had lain, Until the radiant angel said, Seek not the living with the dead.
3. Soon trusting love cast out her fears; she rose and brushed away her tears. As first eyewitness, Mary ran to tell God’s resurrection plan.
4. Jesus is ris-en! Mary cries, Lift up your hearts and dry your eyes, Jesus is ris-en – come and see – and goes before to Galilee.
5. All thanks and praise to God above, for Mary’s witness, joy, and love; All praise to God whom we adore for ever and for evermore. – St. Helena Breviary, alt.
1. Unto Mary, demon-haunted – with unholy dreams distraught;
By her neighbors mocked and taunted – Christ his healing pow-er brought.
Banish, Lord, our minds’ confusion, fear and fever drive away; Down the valleys of illusion spread the kindly light of day.
2. Mary then, with faith unswerving, shared her Savior’s tireless days, Thankfully her Master serving, helping him in humble ways.
Grant, O Lord, that we may never grow too proud for simple things; Let us bring to all endeavor hands unwearied, heart that sings.
3. Unto her, who saw them sunder Christ’s soul from his tortured frame, First appeared the Risen wonder; first the quickened Jesus came.
Lord, when time from us has taken earthly joys and earthly friends, Let our lonely hearts awaken to the joy that never ends. – Joyce Maxtone Graham, alt.
