Original text and translations
The promise which was made unto the fathers, God hath fulfilled the same unto us, their children,
in that He raised up Jesus, He raised up Jesus again. Alleluia.
For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
The flow'rs appear om the earth; and the time of singing is come.
And let all flesh give thanks unto His holy Name for ever and ever. Amen.
