Full Text

1 The golden light of Easter day
Descending from above,
Inspires the heart to sing and pray
To Christ, “The King of love.”

All things awake, to greet their Lord,
Who for our sins hath died;
Let us in one harmonious chord,
Hail Christ, the Crucified;
Let us in one harmonious chord,
Hail Christ, the Saviour crucified.

2 The happy birds in joyful song
Proclaim their praise to Him,
Whose love is always true and strong,
Whose glories ne’er grow dim. [Refrain]

3 The stately palms and lilies white
God’s temples now adorn;
Where we shall meet this Lord of light
Who rose on Easter morn. [Refrain]
