Darkness Shrouds the Awful Mountain

1.  Darkness shrouds the awful mountain;
          Christ our Lord yields up His final breath:
               "Father, now receive My spirit,"
          As He bows His head in death.

2.  Silent is the deposition
          Of His sacred body from the cross;
               Quickly to the tomb they bear Him
          Hushed by grief at their great loss.
3.  Be fulfilled the sign of Jonah--
          Bringing life from death on the third day.
               God has not His Son abandoned
          Nor will Jesus see decay!
