A brighter dawn is breaking


A brighter dawn is breaking,
and earth with praise is waking;
for thou, O King most highest,
the power of death defiest;

and thou hast come victorious,
with risen Body glorious,
who now for ever livest,
and life abundant givest.

O free the world from blindness,
and fill the world with kindness,
give sinners resurrection,
bring striving to perfection;

in sickness give us healing,
in doubt thy clear revealing,
that praise to thee be given
in earth as in thy heaven.
