O time of joy and gladness

Representative Text

1 O time of joy and gladness,
When nature's voices rise
In praise of their Creator,
The King of earth and skies.
O time of song and splendor,
O shining summer days,
With thee our hearts would render
Glad songs of joy and praise!

Chorus:
O time of song and splendor,
O shining summer days,
With thee our hearts would render
Glad songs of love and praise!
O time of song and splendor,
O shining summer days,
With thee our hearts would render
Glad songs of love and praise!

2 From out the gloom and silence,
Of winter's weary hours,
We hail the happy season,
Of sunshine, song and flow'rs.
With anthems of the ocean,
And songs of earth and air,
We join in deep devotion,
To own God's love and care. [Chorus]
