Verse 1: Again the Lord of light and life Awakes the kindling ray, Unseals the eyelids of the morn, And pours increasing day.
Verse 2: O what a night was that which wrapt The heathen world in gloom! O what a Sun which rose this day Triumphant from the tomb!
Verse 3: This day be grateful homage paid, And loud hosannas sung; Let gladness dwell in ev’ry heart, And praise on ev’ry tongue.
Verse 4: Ten thousand diff’rent lips shall join To hail this welcome morn, Which scatters blessings from its wings To nations yet unborn.
