Blest morning whose young dawning rays Beheld our




Blest morning, whose young dawning rays
Beheld our rising God,
That saw Him triumph o’er the dust,
And leave His dark abode!


In the cold prison of a tomb
The dead Redeemer lay,
Till the revolving skies had brought
The third, th’appointed day.


Hell and the grave unite their force
To hold our God in vain;
The sleeping Conqueror arose,
And burst their feeble chain.


To Thy great Name, almighty Lord,
These sacred hours we pay;
And loud hosannas shall proclaim
The triumph of the day.


Salvation and immortal praise
To our victorious King;
Let Heaven, and earth, and rocks, and seas,
With glad hosannas ring.


---Alternative verses---


Blest morning, whose first dawning rays
Beheld the Son God,
Arise triumphant from the grave,
And leave His dark abode!


In the cold prison of a tomb
The great Redeemer lay,
Till the revolving skies had brought
The third, th’appointed day.


Wrapt in the silence of the tomb
The great Redeemer lay,
Till the revolving skies had brought
The third, the appointed day.


Hell and the grave combined their force
To hold our God in vain;
Sudden the Conqueror arose,
And burst their feeble chain.


To Thy great Name, almighty Lord,
We sacred honours pay;
And loud hosannas shall proclaim
The triumph of the day.
