Easter

Father of new creation,

Alleluias to You we sing

For Christ our risen King!

 

Our Christ is risen

To raise our earth to Heaven’s play,

Alleluia to Christ our King!

 

Holy Spirit, our lives raise up

Like flowered fields in bloom

On Easter Day

Plant us where You want us—

Like ripening signs of the new creation.

 

Sing all creatures sing

Trees and fields in bloom appear

Let all souls drooping— now rejoice;

This is the day the Lord has made

We rejoice, and are glad in it!

Christ is Lord, for He has risen—

The First-fruits of Your new creation!
