1 Lo, the earth is risen again
From the winter's bond and pain!
Bring we leaf and flower and spray
To adorn our holiday.
2 Once again the word comes true,
Lo, he maketh all things new.
Now the dark cold days are over,
Light and gladness are before.
3 How our hearts leap with the spring!
How our spirits soar and sing!
Light is victor over gloom,
Life triumphant o'er the tomb.
4 Change, then, mourning into praise,
And, for dirges, anthems raise!
All our fears and griefs shall be
Lost in immortality.
