182. In Golden Summertime

1 The face of earth is smiling,
The bells of gladness chime,
For life is full of beauty
In golden summertime.

Refrain:
In golden summertime,
In golden summertime,
To sounds of June your voice attune,
In golden summertime,
In golden summertime,
In golden summertime,
To sounds of June your voice attune
In summertime.

2 The singing birds are gaily
Now flitting to and fro,
Their notes bright summer’s presence
Proclaim where’er they go. [Refrain]

3 The welcome fruits and flowers,
Which summer’s sweet days bring,
Fulfill in rich profusion
The promises of spring. [Refrain]

4 While sunny hours their bounty
Of joy and cheer impart,
Let God’s unfailing goodness
Bring summer to each heart. [Refrain]
