Representative Text

1 They’re nodding in the meadow grass,
The blossoms, bright and gay,
With cheerful faces lighted up,
To greet this happy day.

Blooming, blooming, thro’ the shining summer hours;
Trusting, trusting God who makes the fragrant flow’rs.

2 Where perfume breezes float along,
They swing their tiny bells;
Each flower, in its own sweet way,
Of God, the Father, tells. [Chorus]

3 Thro’ all the golden summertime,
There’s beauty ev’rywhere;
Come, happy children, praise the Lord,
Who makes the world so fair. [Chorus]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
