A Favorite Easter Song

Now the Green Blade Rises

If video doesn't appear, go here.

Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,
Wheat that in the dark earth many days has lain;
Love lives again, that with the dead has been:
Love has come again, like wheat that springeth green.

In the grave they laid Him, Love Whom we had slain,
Thinking that never He would wake again,
Laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen:
Love has come again, like wheat that springeth green.

Forth He came in quiet, like the risen grain,
He that for three days in the grave had lain;
Quick from the dead the risen Christ is seen:
Love has come again, like wheat that springeth green.

When our hearts are wintry, grieving or in pain,
By his touch can call us back to life again;
Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
Love has come again, like wheat that springeth green.

"The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds."
—Jesus in John 12:23-24
