Representative Text

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

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]
