903. HAIL TO THE BRIGHTNESS

Christ in Song,

1.
Hail to the brightness of Zion's glad morning!
Joy to the lands that in darkness have lain!
Hushed be the accents of sorrow and mourning:
Zion, in triumph, begins her mild reign.

2.
Lo, in the desert, rich flowers are springing;
Streams ever copious are gliding along;
Loud, from the mountaintops, echoes are ringing;
Wastes rise in verdure, and mingle in song.

3.
See, the dead risen from land and from ocean;
Praise to Jehovah, ascending on high;
Fall'n are the engines of war and commotion;
Shouts of salvation are rending the sky.
