At the Dawning of Salvation
At the dawning of salvation,
in the morning of the world,
Christ is raised, a living banner
by the love of God unfurled.
Through the daylight, through the darkness,
Christ leads on His great array:
all the saints and all the sinners
He has gathered on His way.
He is risen in the morning;
He is risen from the dead;
He is laughter after sadness;
He is light when night has fled.
He has suffered; He has triumphed;
life is His alone to give:
as He gave it once, He gives it
evermore, that we may live.
For the glory of salvation
in the dawn of Easter day
we will praise You, loving Father;
we rejoice to sing and pray
with the Son and with the Spirit.
Lead us on, Your great array,
saints and sinners celebrating
Your triumphant love today.

The Day of Resurrection
The day of resurrection — earth tell it out abroad,
the Passover of gladness, the Passover of God!
From death to life eternal, from earth unto the sky,
our Christ hath brought us over with hymns of victory.
Our hearts be pure from evil, that we may see aright
the Lord in rays eternal of resurrection light,
and, listening to his accents, may hear, so calm and plain,
His own “All Hail!” and, hearing, may raise the victor strain.
Now let the heavens be joyful; let earth its song begin;
let the round world keep triumph, and all that is therein;
invisible and visible, their notes together blend,
for Christ the Lord hath risen, our joy that hath no end
