With meter 11 10 10 11, it is almost always set to NOËL NOUVELET, which is a 15th Century French melody and sometimes called FRENCH CAROL in English.
The original title end with "Riseth", but many contemporary recordings present it as "Now The Green Blade Rises".
Although carols are usually associated with Christmas, this work is equally appropriate at Easter.
A number of sheet music arrangements are available, including ones for choirs, bell choirs and other instruments.
Choir, with organ accompaniment
Duet with classical guitar accompaniment
Contemporary Christian music group
Childrens's choir with piano and violin accompanimnet
LyricsThe text is still copyright, so not reproduced here. But it is available from various places, including CyberHymnal. A rough outline is:
1 Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,...
2 In the grave they laid Him, Love Whom we had slain ..
3 Up He sprang at Easter, like the risen grain, ...
4 When our hearts are saddened, grieving or in pain ...Each verse ends with the line "Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green."
