Representative Text

1 Bring the Easter lilies fair
To the house of praise and prayer;
Let them on the altar bloom,
Breathing there a sweet perfume.

Christ hath risen from the tomb,
Clothed in Heav’n’s immortal bloom;
Bring the Easter lilies fair
To the house of praise and prayer.

2 Bring the Easter lilies white,
Bending softly in the light;
Meet for Him whose tender care
Watcheth o’er them everywhere. [Refrain]

3 Bring the Easter lilies now,
While our hearts to Him we bow;
While our songs of gladness rise,
Borne by angels to the skies. [Refrain]
