Representative Text

1 Lilies of Easter,
Wondrously fair,
Breathing thy sweetness
On the still air;
What is the message
Ye would impart,
Into the silence
Of the sad heart.

Beautiful Easter Lilies,
Bring to our hearts the word,
Of One more fair and lovely,
Jesus, the risen Lord;
Beautiful Easter Lilies,
Bring to our hearts the word,
Of One more fair and lovely,
Jesus, the risen Lord;

2 Hark to the whispers
Of the fair bloom,
Risen from silence
Of their dark tomb;
“We bring an answer
To doubt and strife,
We bring a message
Of risen life.” [Refrain]

3 Out from the stillness
Of the dark mold,
Into new beauty,
Lilies unfold;
Ever their presence
In the still air,
Are signs and symbols
Of life most fair. [Refrain]
