SABBATH MORNING




Again the Lord of light and life
Awakes the kindling ray,
Unseals the eyelids of the morn,
And pours increasing day.


O what a night was that which wrapped
A sinful world in gloom!
O what a Sun which broke, this day
Triumphant from the tomb!


This day be grateful homage paid,
And loud hosannas sung;
Let gladness dwell in every heart,
And praise on every tongue.


Ten thousand thousand lips shall join
To hail this welcome morn,
Which scatters blessings from its wings
To nations yet unborn.


---Alternative verses---


Again the Lord of life and light
Awakes the kindling ray,
Unseals the eyelids of the morn,
And pours increasing day.


Again the Lord of light and life
Awakes the kindling ray,
Unseals the eyelids of the morn,
And pours refulgent day.


O what a night was that which wrapped
The heathen world in gloom!
O what a Sun, which broke, this day
Triumphant from the tomb!


O what a night was that which wrapped
The guilty world in gloom!
O what a Sun, which broke, this day
Triumphant from the tomb!


O what a night was that which wrapped
The heathen world in gloom!
O what a Sun which rose this day
Triumphant from the tomb!


Ten thousand different lips shall join
To hail this welcome morn,
Which scatters blessings from its wings
To nations yet unborn.
