We Greet The Smiling Eastertide

We greet the smiling Eastertide,
And sing the blessed story,
The Lamb of God the Crucified
Is living now in glory.

Living now in glory,
Living now in glory;
Tell it far and wide, that he who died
Is living now in glory.

He lives to take our sins away,
Our present mighty Savior;
To help us serve him, ev’ry day,
And show his grace and favor. [Refrain]

Then let us come, a joyful throng,
While all the birds are singing,
Glad measures of the new, new song
From happy voices ringing. [Refrain]

We’ll deck his altar with the flow’rs,
Awakened from their sleeping;
And, better still, these hearts of ours
We’ll give unto his keeping. [Refrain]
