2  Earth her joy confesses, clothing her for spring, All fresh gifts returned with her returning King: Bloom in every meadow, leaves on every bough, Speak His sorrow ended, hail His triumph now.
Refrain. " Welcome, happy morning 1 " age to age shall say, etc.
3   Months in due succession, days of lengthening light, Hours and passing moments praise Thee in their flight; Brightness of the morning, sky and fields and sea, Vanquisher of darkness, bring their praise to Thee!
Refrain. "Welcome, happy morning! " age to age shall say, etc.
4  Maker and Redeemer, life and health of all, Thou from heaven beholding human nature's fall, Of the Father's Godhead true and only Son, Manhood to deliver, manhood didst put on.
Refrain. " Welcome, happy morning!" age to age shall say, etc.
5   Thou, of life the author, death didst undergo, Tread the path of darkness, saving strength to show; Come then, true and faithful, now fulfil Thy word; 'Tis Thine own third morning, rise, O buried Lord!
Refrain. "Welcome, happy morning!" age to age shall say, etc.
