Easter Carol by Ellen Robena Field

          The  world is filled with gladness;
          The bells of Easter ring;
          Each pure white lily's waking,
          To welcome infant spring.

          Chorus.

          Oh, dear little children, listen,
          And hear what the glad bells say!
          The sweetest chime they ever rang—
          "Our  Lord is risen to-day!"

          II.

          Birds are flying across the sky;
          Their songs ring through the air;
          They carol of the Father's love
          He shows us everywhere.

          Chorus.

          Oh, dear little children, listen,
          And hear what the birdlings say!
          The sweetest song they ever sang—
          "Our  Lord is risen to-day!"
