1 Hail! hail the day!
The day of joy and gladness;
The day that saw the Lord arise,
That fill’d the world with glad surprise,
And wak’d the music of the skies.
O hail! hail the day!

Refrain:
Hail the day with song and chorus,
While the sun is shining o’er us,
Scenes of beauty rise before us,
Hail! hail the day!

2 Hail! hail the day!
The day of might and power;
That burst the fetters of the tomb,
And robb’d the grave of all its gloom;
That bade the flow’rs of hope to bloom.
O hail! hail the day! [Refrain]

3 Hail! hail the day!
So full of peace and glory!
When on the worlds’ enraptured sight
There shone from heav’n celestial light,
That turned to day earth’s darkest night.
O hail! hail the day! [Refrain]
