Look to the world, ’tis a temple fair,
Oh, so fair, wondrous fair;
Bidding us all to engage in prayer,
This beautiful Eastertide.


See the meadows in green arrayed;
Beautiful Eastertide!
Dew, like diamonds and pearls displayed,
Beautiful Eastertide!
Streams of silver with flowers strown,
Skies that are sapphire dyed,
Speak the love that the Christ has shown,
This beautiful Eastertide.

Every spot is a holy place,
Holy place, holy place;
Where one may kneel and receive the grace
Of Christ, on this Eastertide.


Altars of God! how they speak of love,
Tender love, perfect love;
Rich gifts of beauty from Christ above,
Who’s risen this Eastertide.
