That Easter day with joy was bright.
The sun shone out with fairer light
when to their longing eyes restored,
the apostles saw their risen Lord.
O Jesus, King of gentleness,
do all our inmost hearts possess,
and we to you will ever raise
the tribute of our grateful praise.
From every weapon death can wield,
your own redeemed forever shield.
O Lord of all, with us abide
in this, our joyful Eastertide.
