Swing, snowy li­lies, to and fro;
Tell ye the sto­ry soft and low;
Jesus is ris­en, emp­ty the grave;
Victor tri­um­phant, He com­eth to save.


Sing, sno­wy lilies! Oh, tell out your joy!
Tell out your joy! Tell out your joy!
Lift the glad carol, the vic­tor’s palm wave,
Jesus is ris­en, al­migh­ty to save!

Swing, snowy li­lies, tell it wide,
Once more He lives, the Cru­ci­fied;
Pain of the scourg­ing and cross are past;
His is the vic­t’ry at last, yes, at last.


Swing, sno­wy lilies, pure and white,
Bring ye love’s off’ring, life and light;
Beauty and frag­rance, your all now bring
Into His pre­sence, the great ris­en King.
