Representative Text

1 In low'ring gloom and cloudiness, the sun had sunk to rest;
And dreariest night had darkened o’er the earth’s sin laden breast:
But when that brightest morning broke, the woe and curse were o’er;
The pow'rs of death were vanquished, and Satan reigned no more.
The Saviour from the tomb arose, the darkness pass'd away,
And o’er the world in beauty dawn'd the glorious Easter day.

2 The angels who in grief and awe had watched His suff'rings dread,
Had seen the scourge, the cross, the nails, the outrage and the wrong,
The anguish keen, the storm of woe, that gathered o’er His head,
See Satan's pow'r triumphant, the hosts of evil strong,
Now wake the strain with one accord thro’ all the courts of Heav’n,
To sing the praise of Love Divine, the joy of man forgiven.
The Saviour from the tomb arose, the darkness pass'd away,
And o’er the world in beauty dawn'd the glorious Easter day.

3 Again the light of Easter dawns, and shall we silent be,
Nor bless the Love, the Grace, the Pow'r, that us from death set free?
With holy joy from earliest morn let each his voice upraise,
And thro’ the ransom'd world resound our Great Redeemer’s praise.
O praise the Father, praise the Son! and Holy Spirit bless'd!
And be the Name of God most High thro’ ev'ry land confess'd.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
