The Risen Jesus in America
1. The lightning and the thunder ceased,
And earth’s upheavals all were still.
The darkness lifted as a cloud
To show the temple shining on the hill.
2. The people gathered quietly,
And in the hush a clear voice said,
“Behold my own beloved son.”
And there was Jesus, risen who was dead.
3. “Come unto me,” he said, “and know.”
And then the people one by one,
Each felt the nail prints, touched his side,
And each one knew that he was God’s own son.
4. The Savior, Jesus Christ, our Lord,
On Calvary was crucified,
He walked among them there and prayed,
The Master, risen now, and glorified.
