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!
