6044. Shines Our Morning Star

1. Shines the blessèd sunlight,
Easter morning breaks;
Unto life and gladness
all the world awakes;
Now has come salvation,
ever full and free,
Christ our Lord has purchased
blessèd liberty.

Praise Him, from the grave!
Praise Him, strong to save!
Songs of gladness raise,
Everlasting praise.

2. Carol forth His praises,
twine your garlands gay;
See, the tomb of darkness
gleams with Heaven’s ray;
Tell the sweetest message
known to mortal men,
Jesus, King and Savior,
lives and reigns again. [Refrain]

3. Glows the blessèd sunlight
in our hearts today,
Rolling clouds of sorrow
from our souls away;
Gleaming out with beauty
thro’ the skies afar,
Shines anew the risen Christ,
our Morning Star. [Refrain]
