That Easter Day with Joy Was Bright

  1. That Easter day with joy was bright:
    the sun shone out with fairer light
    when to their longing eyes restored,
    th’apostles saw their risen Lord.
  2. His risen flesh with radiance glowed,
    his wounded hands and feet he showed;
    those scars their solemn witness gave
    that Christ was risen from the grave.
  3. O Jesus, King of gentleness,
    do thou thyself our hearts possess,
    that we may give thee all our days
    the willing tribute of our praise.
  4. O Lord of all, with us abide
    in this, our joyful Eastertide;
    from ev’ry weapon death can wield
    thine own redeemed forever shield.
