1 When Jesus lives within,
‘Tis summer in the heart;
‘Tis summer, summer, summer in the heart.
Life’s desert wastes rejoice,
Its winter glooms depart,
‘Tis summer, summer, summer in the heart.

Refrain:
‘Tis summer in the heart, summer in the heart;
When the Saviour enters all my woes depart;
‘Tis summer in the heart, summer in the heart;
When the Saviour enters, ‘tis summer in the heart.

2 Sweet flowers of the soul
To life and beauty start;
‘With summer, summer, summer in the heart.
Rich fruits of peace and love
A holy joy impart,
‘With summer, summer, summer in the heart. [Refrain]

3 When from the scenes of earth
My spirit fain must part,
‘With summer, summer, summer in the heart.
Blest visions from above
Their heav’nly light impart,
‘With summer, summer, summer in the heart. [Refrain]
