The winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come.@Song of Solomon 2:11-12

Easter offerings we would bring
To the Lord, our risen king;
Roses rare, and lilies sweet,
We will lay at Jesus’ feet.
It is by His word of power
Beauty clothes each bud and flower;
Choicest blossoms we will bring
As an offering to our king.

Refrain

Bring an offering, Easter offering,
Gifts of love to Jesus bring
As an offering, Easter offering
To the Lord, our risen king.

Easter offerings we would bring
To the Lord, our risen king;
Bringing from our treasured hoard,
Gold and silver to the Lord.
He has crowned our lives with good,
Shelter, raiment, daily food,
Of His bounty let us bring
Worthy offering to our king.

Refrain

Easter offerings we would bring
To the Lord, our risen king;
Unto Him who once was slain
Our eternal life to gain.
Wondrous love! His life to give!
For His glory may we live,
And our hearts to Jesus bring
As an offering to our king.
