1 Beautiful lilies,
White as the snow,
Speak to us softly
Of long ago;
Telling of Jesus,
Who from the grave
Rose all victorious,
Mighty to save.

Beautiful lilies,
White as the snow,
Speak to us softly
Of long ago;
Beautiful lilies,
Beautiful lilies,
Speak to us softly
Of long ago.

2 Lilies of Easter,
Blossoms of spring,
Wake from their slumber
Gladness to bring.
O they are ever
Heaven’s bright sign
Of life beyond us,
Endless, divine. [Refrain]

3 E’en as our Father
From winter’s night
Waketh the lilies
To summer’s light,
So His dear children
His love will keep,
Waking them softly
From death’s long sleep. [Refrain]
