1 O day of radiant gladness, O day of joy and light, O balm of care and sadness, most beautiful, most bright; this day the high and lowly, through ages joined in tune, sing “Holy, holy, holy” to the great God Triune.
2 This day at the creation the light first had its birth; this day for our salvation Christ rose from depths of earth; this day our Lord, victorious the Spirit sent from heaven, and thus this day most glorious a triple light was given.
