NOW with the lengthening days
To God give glory and praise,
Because He spills His plenty on the earth.
That Life stirs bold and brave
Prisoned in tree and grave,
And earth is quick, is quick with myriad birth.

O now the thrushes sing,
The heart has gotten a wing,
And all's given back again, nothing is lost.
They who were dead have come
New from the teeming womb,
Coming with banners, a gay and glistening host.

Now is fast before feast,
Sober the year goes drest,
This is the Lenten time to fast and pray;
But listen and you shall hear
The multitudinous cheer
Rise up, sent forth, of the dead under the clay.

The Lord of Life shall rise
New from the sacrifice,
And all Creation follow, a glistening train
Singing innumerable,
With wonderful news to tell,
How Christ is risen, is risen, and Death is slain.
