Tune: [The flowers slowly awaken]
Published in 2 hymnals
1 The flowers slowly awaken
And open their tender eyes,
While bird are joyfully singing
And soaring toward the skies.
2 The birds are joyfully singing
And greeting the glooming spring;
They sing the same in their gladness
But each with its own sweet ring.
3 They sing the same in their gladness
And never they tire thereof;
No one an measure creation
And cease to admire God's love.
4 No one can measure creation
And fully His love explain;
But man must joyfully marvel
When spring is abroad again.
5 But man must joyfully marvel
And open his heart in song:
The day when spring is eternal
Will surely arrive ere long.
6 the day when spring is eternal
Us promised our Savior dear,
We therefore sing and are joyful
Until that great day is here.
