The Rising of the Sun

O’er the moonlit earth, is rising
The hope of all the nations
Up from darkest places comes
The blazing light of day

Illuminating, all the world
In Holy light of mercy and
Bringing darkness, to an end
And vanquishing our night forevermore

Our bonds to sin and death are broken
By this rising of the Sun
Who Himself, went to darkest depths to free us
He bore our sin and shame

And conquered all, upon His back
He bore all our iniquities
The spotless Lamb, became sin and paid
The price for all mankind

On that day, we were purchased
By Currency, too holy, too beautiful to understand
Here on earth, now illuminated
By His holy, perfect light and grace

So yes, as that sun did rise
So did our Salvation as
Our holy, omnipotent King
Rose as Victor from the grave

Our Jesus, our Lord has done it
Oh praise the risen Son
Oh praise the risen King
Our Savior, our Lover, our Lord

He has done it
We are free

Free to dance beneath His light
And praise His name forever
How good, how good He is
This Holy, uncreated God

This Savior, this Jesus
He has done it
He has saved us, we are free
Praise Him forevermore!
