In Rumbling Midst and Lightening: He Arose

In the Midst of the Rumbling and Lightening: He Arose.

In that dark cloudless starry night

When mortals lay on their bed

And the rock cracked under the

Weight of the freezing snow

In Calvary mount, the sentries stood

Their fire could not melt the frosty night air;

Teeth clanking they stood: watching the

Sealed sepulcher where the lamb laid

Then in a blaze of lightening, the earth shook

And the heavens open as celestial hosts

Descended upon the serene luster hill:

Their hymns and psalteries in seraphic melodies

Drowsed the sentries into stupor

The earth quake and the hill shook

In response to the intense presence

Of the heavenly beings in mortal thoroughfare

Rolling asunder the impregnable seal on the sepulcher

In the midst of the lightening and Rumbling; He arose

He arose from the depth of death eternal captivity;

To vanquish death and its slavery hold on mankind

Alleluia! He arose; him to whom death could not hold captive

He arose to redeemed the saints to their fair heavenly Mansions
