Sweetly The Birds Are Singing At Perkins


“Sweetly the birds are singing
At Easter dawn;
Sweetly the bells are ringing
On Easter morn;”
And the tidings they bring,
Bells, and songsters that sing,
Are, Christ the Lord is risen,
Christ the Lord is risen.

Refrain:
Hallelujah!
Glory hallelujah!
Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

Sweetest of flow’rs were growing,
Ages ago;-
Lilies for Easter blooming
White as the snow;
And all nature was glad,
Not a creature was sad,
For Christ the Lord is risen,
Christ the Lord is risen. [Refrain]

Jesus has risen to glory
To live and reign;
Tell it in song and story,
Over again;
He’s the light of the world,
See His banner unfurled;
So, Christ the Lord is risen,
Christ the Lord is risen. [Refrain]
