Lily bulbs, that in the earth
Slept through months of winter's cold,
Break their clods -- a glorious birth --
Soon their pure white blooms unfold.
Springtime green is on the lawn --
Easter dawn!

Silken cerements, misty, gray,
Within a weathered chrysalis
Held a moth. Resplendent, gay,
She bursts her bonds and finds her bliss;
Fairy creature, winging on --
Easter dawn!

Watchers waiting at the tomb
Where their Lord was laid with tears,
See how joy disperses gloom
As the risen Christ appears!
Night's sad vigil past and gone --
Easter dawn!
