On a Golden Springtime


    On a Golden Springtime


    1. On a golden springtime, underneath the ground,

    A tiny seedling lay asleep until the sun shone down.

    Awake, awake, O little seed!

    Push upward to the light!

    The day is bright. With all your might,

    push upward to the light!

    2. On a golden springtime, Jesus Christ awoke

    And left the tomb where he had lain; the bands of death he broke.

    Awake, awake, O sleeping world!

    Look upward to the light,

    For now all men may live again.

    Look upward to the light!

    3. On a golden springtime, in a forest glade,

    The Father and the Son appeared as Joseph knelt and prayed.

    Awake, awake, O nations all!

    Receive the gospel light!

    The gospel true is here for you.

    Receive its glorious light!
