Hymn/Song Information

In lowering gloom and cloudiness the sun had sunk




In low’ring gloom and cloudiness, the sun had sunk to rest;
And dreariest night had darkened o’er the earth’s sin laden breast;
But when that brightest morning broke, the woe and curse were o’er;
The powers of death were vanquishèd, and Satan reigned no more.
The Savior from the tomb arose, the darkness passed away,
And o’er the world in beauty dawned the glorious Easter day.


The angels who in grief and awe had watched His sufferings dread,
The anguish keen, the storm of woe, that gathered o’er His head,
Now wake the strain with one accord thro’ all the courts of Heav’n,
To sing the praise of love divine, the joy of man forgiven.
The Savior from the tomb arose, the darkness passed away,
And o’er the world in beauty dawned the glorious Easter day.


Again the light of Easter dawns, and shall we silent be,
Nor bless the love, the grace, the power, that us from death set free?
With holy joy from earliest dawn let each his voice upraise,
And thro’ the ransomed world resound our great Redeemer’s praise.
O praise the Father, praise the Son! and Holy Spirit blessed!
And be the name of God most high thro’ every land confessed.
