Morning of mornings, Jesus is risen,
over the sealed grave victor is he!
praise him with joyful songs of thanksgiving;
new every morning his life in me.

Morning of mornings, darkness is over,
no guard could hold him, nor stone enclose;
Son of the Most High came forth in glory;
Jesus the Saviour from death arose.

Morning of mornings, Jesus' disciples
struggled with sadness, doubting and fears,
but, when they saw him in all his glory,
knew he had risen - gladness for tears!
