Easter vi­sits earth again,
In the so­lemn spring;
Blossoms bright­en hill and glen,
Notes of joy sweet­ly ring.


Hail Him, vic­to­ri­ous,
King of love, throned above;
Tell the news o’er and o’er,
While the years go by:
Make His praise glo­ri­ous;
Sing again, earth and sky;
Tell the news ev­er­more,
Our Je­sus lives on high.

Every flow­er that lifts its head,
Breathes a mes­sage bright;
He is ris­en from the dead;
Happy day, day of light!


Tell the sto­ry of the spring
With tri­um­phant voice:
Jesus reigns, ex­alt­ed King,
In His grace, we re­joice.
