10962. The Sun Of Righteousness Appears

1 The Sun of righteousness appears,
To set in blood no more!
Adore the Healer of your fears,
Your rising Sun adore.

2 The saints, when He resigned His breath,
Unclosed their sleeping eyes;
He breaks again the bonds of death,
Again the dead arise.

3 Alone the dreadful race He ran,
Alone the wine press trod,
He died and suffered as a man,
He rises as a God.

4 In vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Forbid an early rise,
To Him who breaks the gates of hell,
And opens paradise.
