Refrain:
Hail thee, festival day!
blest day to be hallowed forever;
day when our Lord was raised,
breaking the kingdom of death.

1 All the fair beauty of earth,
from the death of the winter arising!
Every good gift of the year
now with its Master returns; [Refrain]

2 Rise from the grave now, O Lord,
the author of life and creation.
Treading the pathway of death,
new life you give to us all: [Refrain]

ASCENSION --
Refrain:
Hail thee, festival day!
blest day to be hallowed forever;
day when our risen Lord
rose in the heavens to reign.

1 He who was nailed to the cross
is Ruler and Lord of all people.
All things created on earth
Sing to the glory of God:[Refrain]

2 Daily the loveliness grows,
adorned with glory of blossom;
heaven her gates unbars,
flinging her increase of light: [Refrain]

PENTECOST --

Refrain:
Hail thee, festival day!
blest day to be hallowed forever;
day when the Holy Ghost
shone in the world full of grace.

1 Bright and in likeness of fire,
on those who await your appearing,
you whom the Lord had foretold
suddenly, swiftly descend: [Refrain]

2 Forth from the Father you come
with sevenfold mystical offering,
pouring on all human souls
infinite riches of God: [Refrain]

ALL OCCASIONS --

3 God the Almighty, the Lord,
the Ruler of earth and the heavens,
guard us from harm without;
cleanse us from evil within: [Refrain]

4 Jesus the health of the world,
enlighten our minds, great Redeemer,
Son of the Father supreme,
only begotten of God: [Refrain]

5 Spirit of life and of power,
now flow in us, fount of our being,
light that enlightens us all,
life that in all may abide: [Refrain]

6 Praise to the giver of good!
O lover and author of concord,
pour out your balm on our days;
order our ways in your peace: [Refrain]
