1 The days are gliding swiftly by,
The days so bright and golden,
In leaf and flower the summer writes
Her poem sweet and olden.

Refrain:
The golden days, the long bright days,
The gladdest of the year!
The green grass springs, the wild bird sings,
The summer time is here.

2 The earth is warm with life and joy,
The air is full of splendor
And unto all the south wind brings
Her message sweet and tender. [Refrain]

3 O Giver of these summer hours,
All nature gives Thee praises,
From mountain peak to where the flower
Its lowly bloom upraises. [Refrain]

4 And at Thy feet, we, too, would sing,
With all Thy creatures living,
A song of mirth, a song of joy,
A song of glad thanksgiving. [Refrain]
