On Easter day the Savior rose,
Sing aloud ye children all.
Everywhere the lily grows,
And bells to worship call.


Happy, holy Easter Day,
Christ is ris’n, the angels say,
Blessings with us alway,
O happy Easter Day!

[repeat verse, starting at second word]

The little flowers all around
Lift their tiny heads again;
Snows are melted from the ground,
And life decks hill and plain.


The birds their grateful songs employ,
Him they praise, both great and small;
Every bird and flower and leaf—
He giveth life to all.
