1 The Sun of Righteousness appears,
To set in blood no more!
Adore the scatterer of your fears,
You rising Sun adore.
2 The saints, when he resigned his breath,
Unclosed their sleeping eyes;
He breaks again the bands of death,
Again the dead arise.
3 Alone the dreadful race he ran,
Alone the wine-press trod;
He died and suffered as a man,
He rises as a God.
4 In vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Forbid an early rise,
To him who breaks the gates of hell,
And opens paradise.
The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
