Happy Easter!


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

Wishing you all the joys of this lovely season,

That's lovely, Susanne. It's a beautiful hymn and such a pretty wreath. Happy Easter to you too - and to all.

Thanks, Tuesdaybear, and the same to you.

I love that hymn, and we don't have it because people say they don't know it...I tell them they didn't know any at all when they were born...
A happy Easter to you Melchi.

Thank you, Melchi. The wreath and the poem are both very nice. Who is the author?
Happy Easter to you, too.

Thank you , Steragram. I am an organist at our church. I am used to that argument!!!

Katarina - thank you. It is the first verse of a hymn we sing to the tune of an old French carol "Noel nouvelet". The words are by John Crum, and were published in "The Oxford Book of Carols" 1928.

Happy Easter to you both!

I'm with you, Stera. Where would we be if we never learned or tried anything new? Stuck in the Dark Ages. I think that's what makes you grow old - not the passage of time, but an inability to embrace anything new. Wouldn't we be boring gardeners if we took that approach!

We had a lovely new one this morning. I played the first three verses without a single voice, then the priest asked the congregation to start again at verse one, and by the fifth verse, we had some joining in. It's the only way when there isn't a choir.

What was it?
