Easter flowers, Easter carols
Deck the altar, fill the air;
Glorious dawns the happy morning
O’er a world so bright and fair.


Alleluia, let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

When the clouds of night were broken,
Angels rolled the stone away,
And on this bright Easter morning,
Sing we now the triumph lay.


In the mists of early morning,
Came the faithful to the tomb,
Angel guardians clad in white robes,
Sat there in the breaking gloom.


He is risen! thus the angel
Spake unto the faithful three,
He is risen, wondrous story,
He has gone to Galilee.


Now the clouds of night are broken,
Mortals now the story tell,
He is risen! Alleluia!
Let the joyful anthem swell.
