1. In slumber lay the brooding world
Upon that glorious night,
The sky above in beauty shone
With heavenly, holy light.
The deed was done! The trial o'er!
The agony and shame Had pass'd away,
for Heav'n did now it's buried King reclaim.

O Glorious Night!
Let Heav'ns vaulted arches ring!
O wonderful Night!
all glory to the King!

2. In vain they kept the midnight watch
before that silent tomb;
In vain the Mary's sought their lord
in early morning's gloom.
The time has come! The work is done!
The cruel conflict o'er.
The cross, the thorns, the stinging scourge
are known to Him no more.

O Glorious Night!
Christ is come to reign above;
Christ the King,
the Lord of love.

3. While still the guarding sentry slept,
Upon that glorious night.
Down from the heav'ns in countless throngs
Came angels clothed in white.
With them they bore a crown of gold
To grace that Kingly head;
The stone roll'd back, the Lord of life
Is ris'n from the dead!

O Glorious Night!
Let Heav'ns vaulted arches ring!
O wonderful Night!
Glory to the risen King!
Christ is come to reign above;
Christ the King, the Lord of love,
Let myriad angel choirs their hallelujahs sing.
