Freedom Rises From The Tomb


Through Midnight Ages
Thomas L. Harris

Through midnight ages dark and lone,
Oppression triumphed o’er the free;
They set the watch, they rolled the stone,
Upon the grave of liberty;
When lo! the angels burst the gloom,
And Freedom rises from the tomb.

Robed in the sable veil of fear,
The mourners haste at early day,
But angels from a brighter sphere
Disperse their gloomy cares away;
Rejoice! O earth, rejoice! they cry
For Freedom lives, no more to die.
 
O Christ, our Savior! Thou who art
The Lord and ruler of the free,
Reveal to every human heart
The freedom that is found in Thee;
So shall the world’s last tyrant fall,
And love and light be all in all.


Wishing all of you a Blessed Resurrection Day!

  1. Christus surrexit hodie! I mean, Christ is risen. May I recommend one of my favourite Easter hymns, This Joyful Eastertide? The choir of King's College, Cambridge, does a very good job of it.
