If you know the ly­ri­cist, or where to get a good pho­to of him or Her­ing (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


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


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.


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


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


The Resurrection
Carl H. Bloch (1834–1890)
