from the Latin; translated by John Mason Neale, 1862
Joy dawned again on Easter-Day|
The sun shone out with fairer ray,
When, to their longing eyes restored,
The apostles saw their risen Lord.
2. His risen flesh with radiance glowed;
3. O Jesus, King of gentleness,|
Do thou our inmost hearts possess;
And we to thee will ever raise
The tribute of our grateful praise.
4. Jesus, who art the Lord of all,
5. All praise, O risen Lord, we give|
To thee, who, dead, again dost live;
To God the Father equal praise,
And God the Holy Ghost, we raise.
