The pure white lily raised its cup
At Easter time, at Easter time;
The crocus to the sky looked up

‘We’ll Iiear the song of Heaven!
Its glory shines on us today.
Oh! may it shine on us alway
-At holy Easter Time!”
Twa.s long and long and long ago.

At happ\' Easter time.
And still each little flower dotli sa\'.

For Christ is risen, the angels sa\'
At blessed Easter time!”
