Destroy this temple and in three days, I will raise it up (3x)
Early Sunday morning as the noon day was dawning,
Came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to the tomb.
Behold!!! There was a great earthquake! (2x)
For the angel of the Lord descended from Heaven
The angel of the Lord descended from Heaven (3x)
And rolled, rolled
Back the stone.
His countenance was like lightening and his raiment was as white as snow. (3x)
And for fear of Him the keepers did shake and became as dead men.
Fear not. (3x)
For I know ye seek Jesus who was crucified.
He is not here (4x)
For He has risen as he said.
See the place where the Lord lay.
Remember how He said while He was yet in Galilee
I’ll rise, I’ll rise, Again (4x)
