Easter Song


In the morning in the garden
Birds were singing soft and low.
Flowers nodded, grasses whispered,
As if to say, “We know, we know.”
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
All the earth is glad again.
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
And all men shall live again.
Mary waited in the garden,
Hoping she would see our Lord.
Then He called her, “Mary, Mary,”
And she knew His quiet word.
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
All the earth is glad again.
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
And all men shall live again.
