Pauline F. Camp, 1912 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Easter sunlight, over hill and valley,
Easter blossoms, fairest of the year;
Easter breezes bearing on their pinions,
Music of the Easter bells, in chiming sweet and clear.

Refrain

Easter bells are chiming out, hear their silver ringing;
Easter voices everywhere in joyful chorus sing.
Easter bells and voices, too, join together singing:
Glory to our risen Lord, our Savior and our king.

Little children, joining in the chorus,
Swell the echoes, as they march along;
We, among them, gladly lend our voices;
Jesus loves to hear us sing our happy Easter song.

Refrain

Jesus Christ arose on Easter morning!
’Tis the story that the Bible tells;
Rose, that we might live with Him forever—
This the happy message of the joyous Easter bells.
