VP_016975 Verse 1Ev'ry flow'r that blossoms Fresh from mouldy earth, Sings of resurrection, Whispers of new birth. Ev'ry plant, that dying, Seems to meet decay, Only waits in patience, in patience For an Easterday. Seeds of promise scattered Over all the land, Spring to life and beauty, Guided by God's hand; And our souls, more precious Than all earth beside, Surely shall awaken At some Eastertide. Then let hearts and voices Easteranthems sing, Then let Alleluias Through the glad earth ring; For our Christ is ris'n, our Christ is ris'n! Then let hearts and voices Easteranthems sing, Then let Alleluias Through the glad earth ring; For our Christ has ris'n, our Christ has ris'n, And beyond the grave, O'er death, o'er death and sorrow He is strong to save; O'er death, o'er death and sorrow, He is strong, is strong to save.
