Light's glittering morn bedecks the sky




Light’s glittering morn
bedecks the sky;
Heav’n thunders forth its victor cry;
The glad earth shouts
her triumph high,
And groaning hell makes wild reply.


While He, the King,
the mighty King,
Despoiling death of all its sting,
And, trampling down
the powers of night,
Brings forth His ransomed
saints to light.


His tomb of late
the threefold guard
Of watch and stone
and seal had barred;
But now, in pomp
and triumph high,
He comes from death to victory.


The pains of hell are loosed at last;
The days of mourning now are past;
An angel robed in light hath said,
“The Lord is risen from the dead.”


Th’Apostles’ hearts were full of pain
For their dear Lord so lately slain,
By rebel servants doomed to die
A death of cruel agony.


With gentle voice the angel gave
The women tidings at the grave;
“Fear not, your Master shall ye see;
He goes before to Galilee.”


Then, hastening on their eager way
The joyful tidings to convey,
Their Lord they met, their living Lord,
And falling at His feet adored.


Th’Eleven, when they hear,
with speed
To Galilee forthwith proceed,
That there once more
they may behold
The Lord’s dear face,
as He foretold.


That Eastertide
with joy was bright,
the sun shone out
with fairer light,
when, to their longing
eyes restored,
the glad apostles saw their Lord.


He bade them see
his hands, his side,
where yet the glorious
wounds abide;
the tokens true
which made it plain
their Lord indeed was risen again.


Jesus, the King of gentleness,
do thou thyself
our hearts possess
that we may give thee all our days
the tribute of our grateful praise.


O Lord of all, with us abide
in this our joyful Eastertide;
from every weapon
death can wield
thine own redeemed
forever shield.


All praise be Thine, O risen Lord,
From death to endless life restored:
All praise to God the Father be
And Holy Ghost eternally.


---Alternative verses---


Jesu, the King of gentleness,
do thou thyself
our hearts possess
that we may give thee all our days
the tribute of our grateful praise.
