Lyrics

Beautiful resurrection morn,
Dawn of a glorious day;
Beautiful hope now springs to birth,
Death and the grave give way.

Refrain

Beautiful, beautiful morn,
Beautiful, beautiful morn!
Angels are telling how Jesus arose
On this beautiful morn.

Beautiful morn that broke on earth,
After the gloom of night;
Beautiful angels at the tomb
Tell how He rose in might.

Refrain

Beautiful morn, when we shall see
Jesus descend the sky,
Coming for us in bliss to reign
With the redeemed on high.
