Lyrics

Come, children, one and all,
Our Easter carol sing,
And with the birds and flowers,
Our heart’s pure incense bring.

Refrain

Birds are singing,
Buds are springing,
Everything is gay,
While sunbeams gleaming,
Bright eyes beaming,
Sing our Easter lay.

For Christ has ris’n today,
The Sunday of the year;
Then with glad hearts we’ll raise
Our voices bright and clear.

Refrain

We know it was for us
Our Savior rose today;
Ascending first to Heaven,
He said I am the way.

Refrain

Then let us all today,
Our Easter anthems raise,
And join the angel choirs,
In hymning forth His praise.
