Welcome, happy morning! Age to age shall say

‘Welcome, happy morning!’ age to age shall say;
hell today is vanquished; heaven is won today!
See! the dead is living, God for evermore;
him, their true Creator, all his works adore:
‘Welcome, happy morning!’ age to age shall say.

2. Maker and Redeemer, life and health of all,
you from heaven beholding human nature’s fall,
of the Father’s Godhead true and only Son,
Adam’s race to rescue, Adam’s form put on.
Hell today is vanquished; heaven is won today!

3. Author and sustainer, source of life and breath,
you for our salvation trod the path of death;
come then, true and faithful, now fulfil your word:
on your own third morning rise, O buried Lord!
‘Welcome, happy morning!’ age to age shall say.

4. Loose the souls imprisoned, bound with Satan’s chain;
all that now is fallen, raise to life again!
Show your face in brightness, shine the whole world through;
hope returns with daybreak, life returns with you!
Hell today is vanquished; heaven is won today!
