1 Come, rejoicing, happy children,
To the wildwood with me;
We'll enjoy the wondrous beauty,
Come, for nature is free.

Sunbeams, showers,
Wild birds, flowers,
All of nature's own bowers,
For you and me.

2 Learn to love the gifts of nature,
Little girl, little boy;
From the brooklet to the ocean,
They are yours to enjoy. [Refrain]

3 Come with singing, happy children,
'Neath the sky's azure blue;
All of nature's wondrous store-house
Has been opened for you. [Refrain]
