Full Text

1 Shine, O Sun, in splendour bright
Emblem of the Lord of light,
Who this day rose from the dead,
And captiv'ty captive led.

Sing joyously ye mortals,
For Christ hath op'd the portals
Of life to all again.
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Alleluia, Amen!
Alleluia! Alleluia,
Alleluia! Amen!

2 Now the flowers budding sweet,
In the soil beneath our feet,
Raise themselves from sleep like death,
Praising God with fragrant breath. [Chorus]

3 All the trees and plants in spring
To the Resurrection bring
Signal offerings, and declare
Christ, is ris'n, ev'ry where. [Chorus]
