How calm and beau-ti-ful the morn,

That gilds the sa-cred tomb,

Whereon the cru-ci-fied was born,

And veiled in midnight gloom,

O weep no more the Saviour slain,

The Lord is risen he lives a-gain.

How tranquil now the rising day!

'T is Jesus still appears,

A risen Lord to chase away

Your unbelieving fears;

O, weep no more your comforts slain,

The Lord is risen-he lives again.

And when the shades of evening fall,

When life's last hour draws nigh,

If Jesus shine upon the soul,

How blissful then to die:

Since he has risen that once was slain,

Ye die in Christ to live again.
