1 Beautiful carols of joy we hear,
Nature’s glad voices are singing;
Murmuring brooklets the tidings bear,
Nature’s glad voices are singing;
Woodlands reecho the glad refrain,
Nature’s glad voices are singing;
Message of cheer to hearts so dear,
For spring has come again.

Chorus:
Jesus is King! set the Easter-joy-bells ringing,
Peace is in my soul today, my heart is full of singing;
Jesus lives! peal out the song—new gladness bringing,
Let it echo o’er land and sea, for Jesus is risen indeed!

2 Winter is over, the song repeat,
Nature’s glad voices are singing;
Flowers are blooming in fragrance sweet,
Nature’s glad voices are singing,
Birds of the forest so sweetly sing,
Nature’s glad voices are singing;
Mountain and field their sweetness yield
To deck the lap of spring. [Chorus]

3 Herald the tidings from shore to shore,
Nature’s glad voices are singing;
Jesus is risen to die no more,
Nature’s glad voices are singing;
Echoes of praise o’er the earth resound,
Nature’s glad voices are singing;
Anthems of song the praise prolong,
Let peace and joy abound. [Chorus]
