1. Day of days we gladly greet thee,
Queen of all the festal year,
With unburden'd hearts me meet thee,
In the Easter sunshine clear.
Storms are over, clouds are fled,
Christ is risen from the dead.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2. Winter's cold and snow are ended,
At the coming of the spring;
Who, by breeze and bird attended
Calls for earth's awakening.
Rise ye flowers from winter's bed,
Christ is risen from the dead.
Alleluia! Allelu ia! Alleluia!

3. Banished be our Lenten sorrow,
Sooth'd our bitter Lenten pain;
Night hath found its glad tomorrow,
Joy hath smiled on us again:
All our Lenten tears are shed,
Christ is risen from the dead.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

4. Sing, ye free unfettered waters,
Carol, all ye choiring birds;
For the church her sons and daughters
Bids repeat the joyful words
Once by an Apostle said,
Christ is risen from the dead.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
