Representative Text

1 Easter morn is breaking, over land and sea;
Easter bells are ringing, ringing merrily.

Joyously we carol, may our songs arise
To our blessèd Savior far above the skies.

2 Rosy buds are peeping mid the leaflets green,
Palms and Easter lilies everywhere are seen. [Refrain]

3 We are happy children — singing everywhere;
Jesus loves to have us come to Him in prayer. [Refrain]
