Martyn Simeon B. Marsh, 1834 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Buds and blossoms of the spring,
Bloom to praise the heav’nly King;
Let the joyful news be spread,
Christ is risen from the dead.

Refrain

Ever living, loving Friend,
Now to Thee our songs ascend;
Make us pure in heart, that we
May the heav’nly vision see.

Empty now the Savior’s tomb,
Light is shining through the gloom;
He is living evermore
On the bright eternal shore.

Refrain

Teach us Savior, day by day,
Walking with us by the way;
May our hearts within us burn,
While still more of Thee we learn.
