Some of us stay at the Cross,
Some of us wait at the Tomb,
Quickened, raised, seated together with Christ,
Yet lingering still in its gloom.
Some of us bide at the Passover Feast
With Ascension all unknown--
The triumphs of grace in the heavenly place
That our Lord has made our own.
If the Christ Who died had stopped at the Cross
His work had been incomplete,
If the Christ Who was buried had stayed in the Tomb
He had only known defeat.
But the way of the Cross never stops at the Cross
And the way of the Tomb leads on
To victorious grace in the heavenly place
Where the risen Lord has gone.
