114. Lo, the Earth Is Risen Again

Lo, the earth is risen again
From the winter's bond and pain!
Bring we leaf and flower and spray
To adorn our holiday.

Once again the word comes true,
Lo, he maketh all things new.
Now the dark cold days are over,
Light and gladness are before.

How our hearts leap with the spring!
How our spirits soar and sing!
Light is victor over gloom,
Life triumphant o'er the tomb.

Change, then, mourning into praise,
And, for dirges, anthems raise!
All our fears and griefs shall be
Lost in immortality.
