269. Lo, the Day of Days Is Here

1 Lo, the day of days is here, Alleluia!
Festival of hope and cheer! Alleluia!
At the south-wind’s genial breath — Alleluia!
Nature wakes from seeming death, Alleluia!

2 Fields are smiling in the sun, Alleluia!
Loosened streamlets seaward run, Alleluia!
Tender blade and leaf appear; Alleluia!
‘Tis the spring-tide of the year, Alleluia!

3 Lo, the Eastertide is here, Alleluia!
Music thrills the atmosphere. Alleluia!
Join, you people all, and sing — Alleluia!
Love and praise and thanksgiving, Alleluia!
