1. Roses bring and lilies sweet,
Now to cast at Jesus’ feet;
Roses for our offering bring,
Unto Christ, our risen King.
Lilies sweet as breath of May,
For the resurrection day;
Roses bring and lilies sweet,
Now to cast at Jesus’ feet.

Refrain
Bringing roses, bringing lilies,
Now to cast at Jesus’ feet;
Bringing roses, bringing lilies,
Now to cast at Jesus’ feet.

2. Carols sing, and sweetest praise
Bring to Him these Easter days;
Golden gate, lift up your head,
Christ is risen from the dead.
And the resurrection day
Floods the place where Jesus lay;
Carols sing, and sweetest praise
Bring to Him these Easter days. [Refrain]

3. Twine the cypress, wreathe the bay;
Christ, our King, arose today;
Sing, my soul, in joyous strain,
Jesus died and rose again.
So we’ll rise and live alway,
When shall dawn our Easter day;
Twine the cypress, wreathe the bay;
Christ, our King, arose today. [Refrain]
