Lyrics:Christopher Wordsworth
Music:Arr. from German melody by Lowell Mason

This hymn has a unique tune.


O day of resurrection,

O day of joy and light,

O seal of our redemption,

Most beautiful, most bright:

On thee the high and lowly,

Bending before the throne,

Sing "Holy, holy, holy,"

To the great Three in One.


On thee at the creation

The light first had its birth;

On thee, for our salvation,

Christ rose from depths of earth;

On thee, our Lord, victorious,

The Spirit sent from heaven;

And thus on thee, most glorious,

A triple light was given.


Today on weary nations

The heavenly manna falls!

To holy convocations

The silver trumpet calls,

Where gospel light is glowing

With pure and radiant beams,

And living water flowing

With soul-refreshing streams.


New graces ever gaining

From this of days the best,

We reach the rest remaining

For people who are blest;

To Holy Ghost be praises,

To Father and to Son;

The Church her voice upraises

To Thee, blest Three in One.
