I have a small Meyer lemon tree in a 10-gallon pot. Usually we bring it inside, but had a nice warm day, so let it get fresh sunlight outside. Unfortunately, we forgot to bring it back inside, and the leaves froze overnight. Will it die? How do I revive it and get it to grow new leaves?

Welcome!

The answer will depend upon how cold it got? Where is this tree located?

Plants always handle cold better if they are well hydrated. If the stems of your tree are still green, it will most likely be okay. The leaves will grow back. Don't fertilize until they do grow back. Trying to speed up the tree's recovery at this point will only do more damage.
