Easter flowers are blooming bright,
Easter skies pour radiant light,
Christ our Lord is risen in might,
Glory in the highest!

Refrain

Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ our Lord is risen in might,
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Angels caroled this sweet lay,
When in manger rude He lay,
Now once more cast grief away,
Glory in the highest!

Refrain

He, then born to grief and pain,
Now to glory born again,
Calleth forth our gladdest strain,
Glory in the highest!

Refrain

As He riseth, rise we too,
Tune we heart and voice anew,
Offering homage glad and true,
Glory in the highest!
