Hymn/Song Information

O how fair that morning broke




Oh how fair that morning broke,
When in Eden man awoke!
Beast and bird and insect bright
Reveled in the gladsome light;
God looked down from Heavín above,
All was life and joy and love.


Ah! the doleful change when sin
Darkly, subtly entered in!
War and pestilence and dearth
Mar and sadden Godís fair earth;
Human sorrow fills the air;
Death is reigning everywhere.


Yet rejoice; for God on high
Hath not left His world to die!
Godís dear Son, with dying breath,
Broke the power of sin and death;
Christ the Tempter overthrew,
Christ is making all things new.


Lord, in me be sin subdued,
So may I with heart renewed,
Fight the fight and run the race,
Work in my appointed place,
Waiting for the glad new birth
Of Thy perfect Heavín and earth.
