1. Now the green blade riseth from the buried grain,
Wheat that in the dark earth many days has lain;
Love lives again, that with the dead has been:

Love is come again,
Like wheat that springeth green.

2. In the grave they laid him, Love whom men had slain,
Thinking surely never he would wake again;
Laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen:

3. Forth he came in newness, like the risen grain,
He who thus for three days in the grave had lain,
Quick from the dead my risen Lord is seen:

4. When our hearts are wintry, grieving or in pain,
Thy soft touch can call us back to life again,
Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
