Representative Text

1 Easter bells are sweetly pealing,
Easter flowers are blooming fair;
Easter breezes softly stealing,
Easter music everywhere.

Refrain:
Christ is risen, hallelujah!
Christ is risen, hallelujah!
Conqueror and Savior, He—
Christ hath triumphed gloriously.
Easter bells are sweetly pealing,
Easter music everywhere.

2 Brightly, Resurrection’s beauty
Beams over all the world today;
Vanquished are the powers of darkness,
Night and gloom are turned to day. [Refrain]

3 Christian hearts are now rejoicing
On this blessèd day of days.
Peal on peal, from happy voices,
Fills the house of God with praise. [Refrain]
