Nature’s Easter Song

Lyrics

(Music by Mildred J. Hill, Lyrics by Patty S. Hill, publ. 1896)

1. The seeds and flowers are sleeping sound
Till Easter time, till Easter time,
And then they rise above the ground
At happy Easter time.
And as they rise from sleep they say
That we shall wake someday.

2. The singing birds come back again
At Easter time, at Easter time.
The little streams are waking then
At happy Easter time.
And as they sing with joy they say
That we shall wake someday.

3. The butterflies and moths arise
At Easter time, at Easter time
And spread their wings in glad surprise
At happy Easter time.
And as they rise they seem to say
That we shall wake someday.
