Representative Text

1 Hark! from the fields triumphant life is springing,
Forth from the earth ascension bells are ringing;
There’s no room for pain and grief,
Easter time brings sweet relief,
Life now pushes bud and leaf,
Life, life life!

Refrain:
Life, life, life, exultant life, we meet thee;
Life, life, life, triumphant life, we greet thee;
No more the tomb affrights with its gloom,
For death hath given place to life.

2 Nature awakes from winter’s stern dominion,
Upward faith soars on airy, buoyant pinion;
Earth hath time for naught but joy,
Rapture sweet, without alloy,
Men their highest praise employ,
Life, life, life! [Refrain]

3 Our souls look up from error’s doubts appalling,
Forth to the skies where faith and hope are calling;
All our fears are past and gone;
Light of life, shine freely on;
Hail the resurrection dawn,
Life, life, life! [Refrain]
