See, the Lord of Glory Stands

Long the darkness of the skies

stretched their lonely shadow.

Long the night of shame and lies.

Long the ache and sorrow.

Soft a voice that speaks that name,

heart now beating faster—

there! He stands, just as His claim,

Lord, Rabboni, Master!

CHORUS

See He stands: the Christ who once was slain!

Lord of life now lives our Lord again.

See Him rise resplendent from the grave

Look, believe, He comes for us again.

Endless hours on the road,

travel of the weary.

Dying embers once had glowed

now gone gray and wary.

Hear, a man who speaks the word!

All the prophets promised

stands fulfilled in Christ the Lord;

Christ, our flame of glory!

Emptiness like some great hole

deep inside that mourning.

Crashing waves upon his soul

drifting at its mooring.

Sin reflected in the gleam

of the mirrored image—

broken now as shines a beam

Christ!—across the water!

Grouped around, in joyful grief

faithful to Him gather

Hearts emboldened with belief,

bound by faith together.

As He blesses, see Him rise

God and Man to heaven

soon returning on the skies

Christ! Our Savior given!

CHORUS

See He stands: the Christ who once was slain!

Lord of life now lives our Lord again.

See Him rise resplendent from the grave

Look, believe, He comes for us again.
