John 20:14-16
Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”
She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
16 Jesus said to her, “Mary!”
She turned and said to Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, Teacher).

Hymn: TLH 394: My Faith Looks Up to Thee

Hymnary.org Organ Audio

1. My faith looks up to Thee, 
Thou Lamb of Calvary, 
Savior divine. 
Now hear me while I pray; 
Take all my guilt away; 
Oh, let me from this day 
Be wholly Thine! 

2. May Thy rich grace impart 
Strength to my fainting heart, 
My zeal inspire! 
As Thou hast died for me, 
Oh, may my love to Thee 
Pure, warm, and changeless be, 
A living fire! 

3. While life’s dark maze I tread 
And griefs around me spread, 
Be Thou my Guide. 
Bid darkness turn to day, 
Wipe sorrow’s tears away, 
Nor let me ever stray 
From Thee aside. 

4. When ends life’s transient dream, 
When death’s cold, sullen stream 
Shall o’er me roll, 
Blest Savior, then, in love, 
Fear and distrust remove; 
Oh, bear me safe above, 
A ransomed soul!
