4691. O Blessèd Day!

1. O blessèd day when from the tomb,
The Son of Man in triumph rose!
Where darkness reigned, now shines the light
Of hope eternal, pure and bright.

O blessèd day, when I shall see
The risen Christ, who died for me,
And on that bright and peaceful shore
Rest in His love forevermore!

2. O blessèd day, when on the way
With His disciples Jesus walked!
Their saddened hearts within them burned
As to the Scriptures Jesus turned. [Refrain]

3. O blessèd day, in Bethany
When Christ ascended to His home!
Redemption’s wondrous work is done,
And lo, the Comforter has come! [Refrain]

4. Thrice blessèd day, when Jesus comes
To take His ransomed children home;
Ye saints of God, arise and sing
Hosannas to your Savior King! [Refrain]
