The Easter Lily, purest white,

Seems illuminated by a holy light;

Glowing with grace of the risen Lord,

It stands supreme in the dark of night.

A symbol of One who defeated death

To reign in power above all strife,

To beckon all who will believe

And offer them eternal life.

The debt of my sins has been crucified,

Because Christ lives, I too shall live -

All praise and glory to his blessed Name!

The Easter Lily, so pure and white,

Represents Jesus, the risen Lord;

He stands supreme as the one, true God;

My Savior is worthy

To be loved and adored!
