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.

Refrain:
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]
