Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

A summer of life is coming

Full Text

1. A summer of life is coming,
When this winter of death is gone;
And a song of joy I am humming
For the birth of that summer land morn.

'Tis for all who are living to gain it,
For Christ is the Sun of that sky;
In his light we may press to attain it
That summer land drawing so nigh.

2. A summer of smiles is nearing
For this winter so drear of tears,
And I sing my own heart's cheering,
Of the end of the sorrowful year. [Chorus]

3. A summer of bliss with the parted,
When this winter of graves is no more;
Not a sigh that shall say weary-hearted,
From a lip on that summer land shore. [Chorus]
