Representative Text

1 Easter eggs! Easter eggs! Give to him that begs!
For Christ the Lord is arisen, is arisen.

2 To the poor open your door, something give from your store!
For Christ the Lord is arisen, is arisen.

3 Those who hoard can't afford - moth and rust their reward!
For Chris the Lord is arisen, is arisen.

4 Those who love freely give - long and well may they live!
For Christ the Lord is arisen, is arisen

5 Easter eggs! Easter eggs! Give to him that begs!
For Christ the Lord is arisen, is arisen.
