1 The birds are praises singing
In all the leafy trees;
The incense of the flowers
Is born on every breeze;
The winds that blow so gently
A summer carol sing;
Then join, O happy children,
In praises to your King!

Refrain:
Creation raises
Its song to God above;
Then children join your praises
To Him whose name is love!
To Him, to Him, to Him whose name is love!

2 The happy birds of summer
Are kept through storm and sun;
The Heav’nly Father knoweth
When each short life is done.
And He who keeps the sparrows
Has kept His children too;
Then sin, with hearts and voices,
To Him who cares for you! [Refrain]

3 The flowers in the meadow
That live but for a day,
Are dressed by their Creator
In raiment bright and gay.
And He who loves the lilies
Doth love His children too;
Then sin, with hearts and voices,
To Him who cares for you! [Refrain]
