1 The summer flow’rs are fair and bright,
Bathing themselves in sunny light,
Drinking the dew, drinking the dew;
But lovelier far are those flow’rs that grow,
In the good man’s life as he walks below;
He basks in the light of heav’nly glow,
With a heart all pure and whiter than snow,
A Christian true, a Christian true.

2 Those precious gems of sparkling hue,
Which deck the brow of monarchs true,
Flashing their light, flashing their light;
Eclipsed are these all by those gems of grace,
Which you e’er in the good man’s life may trace,
As he walks by faith, with his hopes ablaze,
In the cloudless light of his Father’s face,
In sweet delight, in sweet delight.
