Representative Text

1 Easter sunlight, over hill and valley,
Easter blossoms, fairest of the year;
Easter breezes bearing on their pinions,
Music of the Easter bells, in chiming sweet and clear.

Easter bells are chiming out, hear their silver ringing;
Easter voices everywhere in joyful chorus sing.
Easter bells and voices, too, join together singing:
Glory to our risen Lord, our Savior and our king.

2 Little children, joining in the chorus,
Swell the echoes, as they march along;
We, among them, gladly lend our voices;
Jesus loves to hear us sing our happy Easter song. [Refrain]

3 Jesus Christ arose on Easter morning!
’Tis the story that the Bible tells;
Rose, that we might live with Him forever—
This the happy message of the joyous Easter bells. [Refrain]
