Genie Lyr Add: Easter song: Joy for Glorious Morning (7) RE: Lyr Add: Easter song: Joy for Glorious Morning 31 Mar 13


Here are the full lyrics:

JOY FOR THE GLORIOUS MORNING!

Joy, joy! What a glorious morning! Oh, what a beautiful day!
The cold, dark tomb couldn't bury the Light
And the stone's been rolled away!

Sing, sing, for the new day's dawning, Heaven and earth reborn!
Hate couldn't conquer the power of Love
On this peaceful Easter morn, On this blessed Easter morn.

Just three days ago / they put Love on trial
'Cause they could not understand.
Ignorance and fear seemed to rule the minds
And darken the hearts of man.

Just three days ago / darkness seemed to reign, we'd been
Blinded by the Light.
But fear and chains could not contain
The power of Love Divine.

So sing out! Let your voice ring out! Love victorious reigns!
Let the earth abound with joyful sound,
For Hope is born again. Yes, Hope is born again.

Praise, praise for the glorious morn'! Let music fill the earth!
Sing, for a new day has dawned
With the promise of rebirth.

So, joy, joy for the glorious morning! Oh, what a jubilant day
When Love sprang forth ? without a sound ?
And rolled that stone away! And rolled that stone away!
