Lyrics

What do the dear lit­tle flow­ers say,
Nodding about us so glad and gay?
Blooming in beau­ty for East­er day,
Bright East­er day.

Refrain

Gladly we wel­come the ris­en King,
Beauty and sweet­ness to Him we bring.

This is the word that the flow­ers say,
On this joy­ous East­er day.

What do the dear lit­tle flow­ers say,
Turning their faces to Hea­ven’s blue!
Giving out per­fume the whole day thro’,
This East­er day.

Refrain

What do the dear lit­tle flow­ers say?
Listen, while slow­ly they bend and sway,
Bowing their heads in a rev­er­ent way,
This East­er day.
