Representative Text

1 O ‘tis summer all the time
When we feel the love sublime,
Love that only Christ can give,
When He bids us look and live.

Yes, ‘tis summer all the time,
All the time, all the time,
When we feel the love sublime,
Then ‘tis summer all the time.

2 Glory beams are in the soul
When the Saviour holds control;
Mortal tongue can ne’er express
All its joy and blessedness. [Refrain]

3 In the heart is music sweet
When the cleansing is complete;
Welling up, glad songs arise,
To the Ruler of the skies. [Refrain]

4 Would you dwell in summer-land
Roam amid the meadows grand,
Feed on manna all the time?
Seek and find the love sublime. [Refrain]
