1 The Easter lilies shed their rich perfume,
And greet the morning of the Resurrection;
So let our spirits sweetly bud and bloom,
And yield the off’ring of a pure affection.

Refrain:
We ring the bells of Eastertide!
We sing the praise of Him who died!
We hail the day when He arose,
Triumphant over all His foes.

2 Let happy children hail their risen Lord,
And infant voices softly sing His glory;
Let ev’ry Christian spread the heav’nly word,
And tell again the blessed Easter story! [Refrain]

3 Today, ye bells, ring out a joyful chime,
With cheerful tones and merry notes of gladness;
And greet once more the happy Eastertime,
And bid each mourning heart dispel its sadness. [Refrain]

4 O Lord of Life! on this bright Easter morn,
Accept the tribute of our adoration;
May life divine in ev’ry soul be born,
And rise from sin and death to full salvation. [Refrain]
