If in that Syrian garden, ages slain,

You sleep, and know not you are dead in vain,

Nor even in dreams behold how dark and bright

Ascends the smoke and fire by day and night

The hate you died to quench and could not fan,

Sleep well and see no morning, son of man.


But if, the grave rent and stone rolled by,

At the right hand of majesty on high

You sit, and sitting so remember yet

Your tears, your agony and bloody sweat,

Your cross and passion and the life you gave,

Bow hither out of haven and see and save.


Easter Hymn by A.E. Housman (1859-1936)
