1 HAIL! this morn's auspicious light,
2 That rose upon the gloom of night:
3 Mortals! your tongues should never cease
4 To hail the glorious Prince of Peace.
5 Sons of men, he dwelt with you,
6 The perfect rule of life he drew:
7 See your Saviour's matchless love,
8 For you, severest sorrows prove.
9 The friend of man, he yields his breath,
10 Despis'd in life, revil'd in death;
11 But grief and pain, and death he bore,
12 To soften their tyrannic pow'r.
[Page 213]
13 Arise and shine, our light is come,
14 He breaks the prison of the tomb:
15 Celestial Hero! wide display,
16 The banners of eternal day.
17 We'll rest our hopes upon his word,
18 And wait the coming of our Lord;
19 The power of death no more we'll dread,
20 For Christ is risen from the dead.
21 Hail! this morn's auspicious light,
22 That rose upon the gloom of night;
23 Mortals, your tongues should never cease,
24 To hail the glorious Prince of Peace.
