On a Golden Springtime

Children’s Songbook (1989, 2017), p. 88

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!
