Sweetly the birds are singing
At Easter dawn;
Sweetly the bells are ringing
On Easter morn
;
And the tidings they bring,
Bells, and songsters that sing,
Are, Christ the Lord is risen,
Christ the Lord is risen.

Refrain

Hallelujah!
Glory hallelujah!
Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

Sweetest of flowers were growing,
Ages ago;
Lilies for Easter blooming
White as the snow;
And all nature was glad,
Not a creature was sad,
For Christ the Lord is risen,
Christ the Lord is risen.

Refrain

Jesus has risen to glory
To live and reign;
Tell it in song and story,
Over again;
He’s the light of the world,
See His banner unfurled;
So, Christ the Lord is risen,
Christ the Lord is risen.

Refrain
