Hymn/Song Information

Now morning lifts her dewy veil




Now morning lifts her dewy veil
With new-born blessings crown'd :
Oh ! haste we then her light to hail
In courts of holy ground !


But Christ, triumphant o'er the grave,
Shines more divinely bright:
Oh ! sing we then His power to save,
And walk we in His light!


When from the swaddling bands of shade,
Sprang forth the world so fair,
In robes of brilliancy arrayed,
Oh, what a Power was there !


When He, who gave His guiltless Son
A guilty world to spare,
Restored to life the Holy One,
Oh, what a Love was there!


When forth from its Creator's hand
The earth in beauty stood,
All decked with light at His command,
He saw, and called it good.


But still more lovely in His sight,
The earth still fairer stood,
When the Holy Lamb wash'd it white
In His atoning blood.


Still, as the morning rays return,
To the pious soul 'tis given
In fancy's mirror to discern
The radiant domes of Heaven.


But now that our eternal Sun
Hath shed His beams abroad,
In Him we see the Holy One,
And mount at once to God.


Oh, holy, blessed Three in One !
May Thy pure light be given,
That we the paths of death may shun,
And keep the road to Heaven!
