Long Before Sunrise, The Savior Arose
 
   
 
 

1. Just before sundown that sad afternoon,
They placed our dear Savior in His borrowed tomb;
Afraid that the people would steal Him away,
The soldiers stood guard as they sealed up His grave.

2. Early on Sunday with hearts filled with gloom,
in love for their Savior, they came to the tomb;
But wonder of wonders, just like He foretold,
Long before sunrise, the Savior arose.

Chorus: Long before sunrise, the Savior arose!
Raised in great power, defeating His foes.
Back up to the Father, triumphant He goes,
Long before sunrise, the Savior arose.

3. Jesus ascended, His glory restored,
He reigns in great power, for Jesus is Lord!
And soon He is coming for His chosen Bride,
And on that great sunrise, the saints shall arise!

CHORUS: On that great sunrise, the saints shall arise!
For we shall see Him in clouds of the sky!
Caught up in glory to heaven on high!
On that great sunrise, the saints shall arise!

TAG: Long before sunrise, our Savior arose!
