34*. Ye Trembling Saints Who Love the Lord

C.M.
by Doddridge
1
Ye trembling saints who love the Lord,
 
Chase all your fears away;
 
For lo! the tomb is empty now—
 
The place where Jesus lay.
John 20:1-10; John 20:12
2
Thus low the Lord of life was brought,
 
Such wonders love can do;
 
There cold in death that bosom lay
 
Which throbbed and bled for you.
Acts 3:15; Philippians 2:8; John 19:42
3
Then raise your eyes, and tune your songs,
 
For Jesus lives again;
 
Not all the powers of death and hell
 
The Saviour could detain.
Revelation 1:18; 1 Corinthians 15:54-57
4
Exalted far above the skies,
 
Behold your living Head,
 
The Lord upon the Father's throne,
 
Who dwelt among the dead.
Philippians 2:9; Colossians 1:18; 1 Corinthians 15:20
“The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie. And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.” (John 20:1-10)
“And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.” (John 20:12)
“And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.” (Acts 3:15)
“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” (Philippians 2:8)
“There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.” (John 19:42)
“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” (Revelation 1:18)
“So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:54-57)
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.” (Philippians 2:9)
“And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.” (Colossians 1:18)
“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.” (1 Corinthians 15:20)
