Hymn/Song Information

Lo the fair beauty of earth




Refrain.
Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed forever,
day where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.


Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed forever,
day where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.



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 where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.



He who was nailed to the cross,
is Lord and the ruler of nature;
all things created on earth,
sing to the glory of God.

Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed forever,
day where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.



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 where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.



Rise from the grave now, O Lord,
who are author of life and creation.
Treading the pathway of death,
life thou bestowest on all:

Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed forever,
day where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.



God the Creator, the Lord,
who rulest the earth and the heavens,
guard us from harm without,
cleanse us from evil within:

Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed forever,
day where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.



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 where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.



Spirit of life and of power,
now flow in us, fount of our being,
light that dost lighten all,
life that in all dost abide:

Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed forever,
day where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.



Praise to the Giver of good!
Thou Love who art author of concord,
pour out thy balm on our souls,
order our ways in thy peace:

Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed forever,
day where-on Christ arose,
breaking the kingdom of death.
