Birds are singing, woods are ringing

Representative Text

1 Birds are singing, woods are ringing,
With thy praises, blessed King;
Lake and mountain, field and fountain,
to thy throne their tributes bring.

Refrain:
We, thy children, join the chorus,
Merrily, gladly praising thee;
Glad hosannas, glad hosannas,
Joyfully we lift to thee.

2 Waters dancing, sunbeams glancing,
Sing thy glory cheerily;
Blossoms breaking, nature waking,
Chant thy praises merrily. [Refrain]

3 Angels o'er us join the chorus
Which on earth we sing to thee;
Heav'n is ringing, earth is singing
Praises to thee joyfully. [Refrain]
