Representative Text

1 Awake, O ye blossoms, the springtime is here,
The bird-notes are swelling, the summer is near;
This bright Easter morning break forth from your tomb,
With radiant brightness, to banish earth’s gloom.

Ye sunshine and showers, your mission fulfill,
And waken the blossoms o’er valley and hill;
Arouse them once more from their prison of clay,
To gladden our hearts on this bright Easter Day.

2 Awake, O ye blossoms, the winter has fled,
And life is appearing once more from the dead;
Your radiant faces the earth will adorn,
Your beauty will brighten this glad Easter morn. [Refrain]

3 Awake, O ye blossoms, come forth to the light,
The long night is over, the morning is bright;
Come forth from the gloom of your prison of clay,
Come forth to the light and the glory of day. [Refrain]
