CHRISTIANS, see the orient morning

Breaks along the heathen sky,

Lo! the expected day is dawning,

Glorious day sprung from on high,

Halleluiah, Halleluiah.

Glory be to God on high.

Soon the valleys and the mountains,

Breaking forth in joy shall sing:

And the living crystal fountains

From the thirsty ground shall spring.

While the wilderness rejoices,

Roses shall the desert cheer;

And the dumb shall tune their voices-

Blind shall see, the deaf shall hear.

Light shall burst on every nation-

Truth shall spread from pole to pole-

And the anthem of salvation

Round the universe shall roll.
