There was no joy in the land of David.

The sun went down on Calvary.

The weary work now is over.

The Son of God is in a tomb.

 

Sabbath day there was no rejoicing.

The sun went down on Calvary.

Saturday night the stars wouldn’t shine.

The moon would not give her light.

 

All over Israel there is sorrow.

The Son of God is in a tomb.

The sun went down on Calvary.

The Son of God is in a tomb.

 

Glory, glory, glory halleluia.

Glory, glory, halleluia.

Halleluia! Halleluia! Glory, glory halleluia!

Sing ye people of God, sing and rejoice.

This morning the sun rose over Calvary.

Glory, glory, glory halleluia.

This morning the sun rose over Calvary.
