HYMN 318

C.M.S. 217 H.C 203 (FE 341)
"I shall be satisfied, when I awoke, 
with thy likeness" - Ps. 17:15

1.  ON the resurrection morning 

     Soul and body meet again

     No more sorrow, no more 

     weeping No more pain.

2.  Here awhile they must be parted 

     And the flesh its Sabbath keep 

     Waiting in a holy stillness 

     warped in sleep.

3.  For awhile the tired body

     To its resting-place is borne 

     Till there dawns the last and 

     Brightest Easter morn.

4.  But the soul in contemplation 

     Utters earnest prayer and strong 

     Breaking at the resurrection Into song.

5.  Soul and body re-united 

     Thenceforth nothing shall divide 

     Walking up in Christ’s own 

     likeness Satisfied.

6.  Oh the beauty, oh the gladness

     Of that resurrection day

     Which shall not through endless 

     ages Pass away!

7.  Oh that happy Easter morning

     All the graves their dead restore 

     Father, Mother, Child and brethren 

     Meet once more.

8.  To the brightest of all meeting: 

     Bring us, Jesus Christ, at last 

     To thy cross, through death and 

     Judgment Holding fast.  Amen
