Representative Text

1 Now the fairy queen of summer
Ruleth over land and main,
And her magic sceptre bringeth
Wondrous beauty in its train!
On the highland, in the lowlands,
Flowers fragrant, flowers fair,
Catching sunbeams, catching dewdrops,
Lift their graceful forms in air.

Refrain:
Now the fairy queen of summer
Ruleth over land and main,
And her magic sceptre bringeth
Wondrous beauty in its train!
And her magic sceptre bringeth
Wondrous beauty in its train!

2 List! the merry brook goes laughing
Down the meadow, thro’ the glen,
See, the river’s rolling waters
Heaven’s blue give back again.
And the hum of bee, of insect,
On the summer ether floats,
While above, around, beside us,
Little songsters trill their notes! [Refrain]

3 O the summer days of childhood,
Brightest season in life’s year!
Laden with the buds of promise,
Full of beauty, hope, and cheer!
Jesus loves the life of childhood,
Lived the summer days of youth.
May we live within His sunshine,
Growing to His life, His truth. [Refrain]
