1. A glorious voice sounds through the night,
And chides the darkness into light:
The mists of sleep are driv'n afar,
And Christ shines forth the Morning Star.
2. Now from the torpor leaps the mind,
And leaves all taint of earth behind;
The new-born planet flames on high,
And bids all care and sorrow fly.
3. Now from above the Lamb is sent,
To pay the debt, O penitent!
Weap! and with tears thy praise uplift,
In thanks for so supreme a gift.
4. To Father, Son and Holy Ghost
The King of Heaven's immortal host,
May men and angels praise outpour,
Forever and forever more.
