“Death is Swallowed Up in Christ” — He Lives!

Apr 4, 2010 by

A heartfelt Happy Easter to all of you from Mormon Women: Who We Are.

Come at the dawn to the silent garden
Brightly beams the morning sun
Come at the dawn to the silent garden
See what wonder the Lord hath done!

Come to the tomb in the silent garden
Lo! the stone is rolled away
Linger in awe, for the tomb lies empty
See the place where his body lay

He is risen! He is risen! risen unto endless life
Weep no more in the silent garden
Death is swallowed up in Christ

Seek him no more in the silent garden
Seek him not among the dead
Find him in glory among the living
Risen even as he said

Victory is wrought in the silent garden
Joy is born of an empty tomb
Sing for the morning of our salvation
Christ hath brought us life anew

He is risen! He is risen! risen unto endless life
Weep no more in the silent garden
Death is swallowed up in Christ.

Mosiah 16: 7-8:  And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no asting, there could have been no resurrection. But there is a aresurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of bdeath is swallowed up in Christ.

1 Cor. 15: 55: O adeath, where is thy sting? O bgrave, where is thy victory?

He Lives! How grateful we are for prophets and apostles today who testify of the Savior, Jesus Christ, just as ancient prophets and apostles did.

    I had Mosiah 16:8 put on my son’s headstone.

    Floyd,

    Thank you for sharing that.

    I imagine, though, that the temporary sting of death is still there. We send our condolences for your loss, however long it has been.
