Hymn/Song Information

Blest morning whose first dawning rays




Blest morning! whose first dawning rays
beheld the Son of God
Arise triumphant from the grave,
and leave his dark abode.


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


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


To thy great name, Almighty Lord!
we sacred honours pay,
And loud hosannahs shall proclaim
the triumphs of the day.


Salvation and immortal praise
to our victorious King!
Let heavín and earth, and rocks and seas,
with glad hosannahs ring.


To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
the God whom we adore,
Be glory, as it was, and is,
and shall be evermore.


---Alternative verses---


Blest morning! whose first 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 great Redeemer lay,
Till the revolving skies had brought
the third, th' appointed day.


Hell and the grave unite their force
to hold our Lord in vain;
Behold the mighty Conqueror rise,
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.
