84. The Sun Has Now Risen In Heavenly Glory

1. The sun has now risen in heavenly glory,
And shines through the darkness of night.
Now rejoice and sing praises yea shout the glad story
For in Christ the Redeemer is healing and light.
To God be the glory (God be the glory) and goodwill to men.
Through Christ our Redeemer (Christ our Redeemer) shall peace (and goodwill) come again.

2. The world lay benighted in death and destruction,
All mankind in sin was forlorn.
But through faith in the Saviour comes peace and salvation,
Sing with joy all ye ransom'd, the Saviour is born.

3. Now go with the shepherds and follow the wise men
To seek for the heavenly child.
And when ye have found Him, accept and adore Him,
The Christ-child from glory So gentle and mild.
