Hymn/Song Information

Lo the fair beauty of earth




Refrain.
Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.


Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



Lo, the fair beauty of earth,
from the death of the winter arising,
every good gift of the year
now with its Master returns.

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



Daily the loveliness grows,
adorned with the glory of blossom;
heaven her gates unbars,
flinging her increase of light.

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



Christ in his triumph ascends,
who hath vanquished the devil's dominion;
gay is the woodland with leaves,
bright are the meadows with flowers.

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



Christ overwhelms the domain
of Hades and rises to heaven;
fitly the light gives him praise--
meadows and ocean and sky.

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



Loosen, O Lord, the enchained,
the spirits imprisoned in darkness;
rescue, recall into life those
who are rushing to death.

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



So shalt thou bear in thine arms
an immaculate people to heaven,
bearing them pure unto God,
pledge of thy victory here.

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



Jesus, the health of the world,
enlighten our minds, thou Redeemer,
Son of the Father supreme,
only-begotten of God!

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



Equal art thou, co-eternal,
in fellowship ay with the Father;
in the beginning by thee
all was created and made.

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.



And it was thou, blessèd Lord,
who discerning humanity's sorrow,
humbledst thyself for our race,
taking our flesh for thine own.

Hail thee, festival day!
Blest day that art hallowed forever;
day when our God ascends
high in the heavens to reign.
