Representative Text

1 Easter visits earth again,
In the solemn spring;
Blossoms brighten hill and glen,
Notes of joy sweetly ring.

Hail Him, victorious,
King of love, throned above;
Tell the news o’er and o’er,
While the years go by:
Make His praise glorious;
Sing again, earth and sky;
Tell the news evermore,
Our Jesus lives on high.

2 Every flower that lifts its head,
Breathes a message bright;
He is risen from the dead;
Happy day, day of light! [Refrain]

3 Tell the story of the spring
With triumphant voice:
Jesus reigns, exalted King,
In His grace, we rejoice. [Refrain]
