Oh, beautiful, beautiful Easter,
What joy to us you bring!
What pleasures sweet, when here we meet,
To praise our risen king!

Refrain

Easter! Easter!
Beautiful, beautiful Easter!
Day so dear, so full of cheer,
And happiness and love!
Easter! Easter!
Beautiful, beautiful Easter!
Christians, raise your sweetest praise
To God above.

No sadness now lingers around us,
For all the world looks bright;
And glad eyes glow, where’er we go,
With blessèd Easter light.

Refrain

The songbirds are joyously singing,
And bells make merry rhyme;
Yes, all things say or sing today,
’Tis gladsome Easter-time.

Refrain

Oh, glorious Savior, Thy praises
Today our souls employ,
For Thou dost live again to give
This time of light and joy.

Refrain
