1 Welcome with gladness the children’s day,
Welcome the day,
Welcome the day.
Flowers are speeding the hours away,
Filling all hearts with a song.
Roses with smiling in fragrance grow,
Sending their perfume throughout all the land.
Wonders of nature they humbly show,
Heaven is blessing with bounteous hand.

Refrain:
Roses are blooming,
Blooming in fragrance and beauty,
Roses are blooming;
Roses are blooming today,
Bright in the sunshine, when roses bloom,
Banishing all of the winter’s gloom;
Flowers are blooming on hiss and plain;
They’re praising the Lord again.

2 Summer and flowers have come again;
Flowers have come,
Flower have come;
Praising the Lord with a glad amen,
Bringing their tokens of love.
Welcome the summer: Its days so fair;
Welcome the woodland: Its foliage green,
Sing to the Saviour, his blessings share,
God and his goodness are ev’rywhere seen. [Refrain]

3 Praise to the Lord! Be his glory shown;
Praise to the Lord,
Praise to the Lord.
Praise to the Lord! Make his blessings known;
Praise to the Saviour today.
Praise ye the Lord, ev’ry hill and plain,
Rainbow of summer and wave of the sea;
Children of men join the glad refrain,
Honor and praise to the Lord ever be. [Refrain]
