O welcome, bright morning, we love thy sweet light,
For past is the darkness of sin’s bitter night;
We lift our glad voices in triumph today,
Our glorious Redeemer lives.

Refrain

O beautiful Eastertide,
Thy wonderful message send far and wide;
O beautiful Eastertide,
We hail, thee, O joyous day.
O beautiful Eastertide,
Thy wonderful message send far and wide;
O beautiful Eastertide,
We love thy refulgent ray.

Rejoice! O ye Gentiles, that death is no more,
The grave’s dreadful triumph forever is o’er;
Shout! shout the glad anthem
With voice loud and strong,
Our glorious Redeemer lives.

Refrain

The day of rejoicing for mankind is here,
The grave, robbed of terror, no longer hath fear;
Then lift your glad voices in triumph today,
Our glorious Redeemer lives.
