Epiphany – In the Lunar New Year

Xing nian kuai le

Now comes an early spring! 

Now is the time to awaken love!

Winter passes.

Spring bursts up and flowers bloom;

Christ appears— all earth’s at play!

 

Uplift your heads;

Angels, humans and blue birds too;

Sing you creatures, all creatures sing!

 

Trees and fields in bloom appear;

Speak our Lord, and let us hear;

Let all souls drooping— now rejoice.

 

To raise our earth to Heaven’s play—

Our King appears— Epiphany!
