Riding over heav’n’s highway,

Is day’s bright king–the sun.

its light is flung o’er all the earth,

As sunrise greets each one.

—–

Dawn’s gray mist is rolled away,

And darkness turned to light,

Morn’s bright rays seem brighter still

When foll’wing shades of night.

—–

Light brings work, and work brings life,

A life like God’s own Son,

Light brings sight, and sight brings joy,

The joy of work well-done.

—–

Christ arose in dawn’s gray mist

And rolled it all away;

Christ arose and brought the light

That brings our happy day.

—–

Words of angels at his tomb

Ring clear o’er ev’ry way:

Christ is risen, and has brought

The light–eternal day.
