Representative Text

1 Winter’s stormy days are over now,
Spring is here,
Tender buds of green on ev’ry bough,
Open near,
Gray and gloomy skies are growing bright,
Warm and blue,
All the world is full of joy and light,
Life is born anew.

Spring has come, Spring has come,
Sing with delight, for the Spring has come,
Give Him praise, glad songs raise,
Hail the golden days!
Spring has come, Spring has come,
Sing with delight, for the Spring has come,
Darkness past, light at last,
Spring has come.

2 Soon the groves will ring with birds-notes sweet,
All day long,
Each returning sign of Spring they’ll greet
With their song,
Barren hill and field will brightly glow
With fair flow’rs,
Warm and fragrant winds will softly blow,
Bringing sunny hours. [Refrain]

3 So from all the storm and stress of life
Joys arise,
After weary hours of toil and strife,
Smiling skies,
After all the fear and doubt of night,
Faith made strong,
After dark’ning clouds, the Easter light,
Then the victor-song. [Refrain]
