1. Flee away, ye shades of night!
Sweetly breaks the morning light;
Never was there morn like this,
Dawning of eternal bliss;
As the light dispels the gloom,
See! the Easter lilies bloom.

Refrain
Flee away, ye shades of night!
Sweetly dawns the morning light.

2. Flee away, O dark despair,
As I greet the morning fair;
Like the Master I shall rise,
Where the daylight never dies;
At the portal of the tomb,
See! the Easter lilies bloom. [Refrain]

3. Risen Lord and Savior dear,
Let me feel Thee ever near.
From Thine empty tomb there beams
Risen hopes o’er faded dreams;
E’en amidst the valley’s gloom,
See! the Easter lilies bloom. [Refrain]

4. As the calyxes of gold,
Rest within the lilies’ fold,
Sweetly I may rest in Thee
And o’er death cry Victory!
Boasting grave, I read thy doom,
In the Easter lilies’ bloom. [Refrain]
