In an Upper Room

music, In an Upper Room

1. They sat at meat, their souls in pain,

The Lord was dead, the Lord was slain:

They’d seen him on the cross of doom;

His body lay in Joseph’s tomb.

Then by the board he stood once more:

He lives, he lives, now as before!

He ate, then drank;

They saw, then felt,

As at his feet in awe they knelt.

2. A calm command to Thomas came:

“Feel thou my hands, they are the same

As when I hung upon a tree,

And suffered death for all and thee.”

To him he said, in solemn tones:

“My body feel, ’tis flesh and bones.”

Our souls cry out:

“Bow ’neath his rod;

Acclaim him Savior, Lord and God.”
