1 What do the Easter lilies say,
Softly, softly growing?
Christ the Lord is risen today,
He is risen to live alway,
This the Easter lilies say,
Softly, softly growing.
2 Lilies, ring your Easter bells,
Gaily, gaily ring them;
Joyous news ye have to tell
Of the Christ whom we love well,
He is risen! O Easter-bells,
Gaily, gaily ring it.
3 Sing it, heart that once was sad,
Sweetly, sweetly sing it;
Christ is risen to make you glad,
Sing then, heart, and be not sad.
Lilies, children, one and all,
Sweetly, sweetly, sing it.Source: Bible Study Songs: for junior societies, junior and primary Sunday schools #118b
