  1. 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. 2. On a golden springtime, Jesus Christ awoke
    And 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. 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!
