1 Scenes of beauty greet me ev’rywhere;
Birds are singing, music fills the air;
Grasses sparkle, skies are sunny blue—
Listen, and the secret I will tell to you.

Refrain:
The birds are singing in my heart,
The birds are singing in my heart;
The days are happy and the nights are never long,
For the birds are always singing in my heart.

2 Daylight fades into the golden west;
Darkness falls, I lay me down to rest;
Heav’nly voices bless the since deep;
Angels ‘round my bed their ceaseless vigil keep. [Refrain]

3 Life is filled with beauty like the flow’rs;
Peace and gladness crown the weary hours;
God is good, and from His realm above
Sends the birds to sing of heaven and His love. [Refrain]
