1. On a golden springtime, underneath the ground,A tiny seedling lay asleep until the sun shone down.Awake, awake, O little seed!Push upward to the light!The day is bright. With all your might,push upward to the light!
2. On a golden springtime, Jesus Christ awokeAnd left the tomb where he had lain; the bands of death he broke.Awake, awake, O sleeping world!Look upward to the light,For now all men may live again.Look upward to the light!
3. On a golden springtime, in a forest glade,The Father and the Son appeared as Joseph knelt and prayed.Awake, awake, O nations all!Receive the gospel light!The gospel true is here for you.Receive its glorious light!
