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.
