Easter Morning Glory*
The Earth's star rises
Over the river of Westport
In glory you arise
Over the river of time
You are the world’s true Morning Star,
That heralds in the eternal day
That gives us joy and eyes to see
In darkness your hand divine at play
True Light itself, Eternal Day,
Creator of the glorious sun,
Inspire us with your grace
To seek heaven - your divine face .
And may you purify our mind
Suppress what lower nature claims,
So that our bodies too may be
The Holy Spirit’s spotless shrine.
Jesus, to you, beneath whose sway
All earth shall bow, all praise we pay;
With Father and with Spirit be
All glory yours eternally. Amen.
