Full Text

1 When the lavish hand of summer,
Decks the earth in fair array,
Radiant with golden sunshine,
Comes the welcome Children’s Day.

Refrain:
Welcome, welcome Children’s Day,
Happy, happy Children’s Day;
In the time of birds and blossoms
Comes the welcome Children’s Day.

2 When the roses scent the breezes
Which among them softly stray,
And when arching skies are bluest,
Comes the welcome Children’s Day. [Refrain]

3 When the merry birds are singing
Over nests their sweetest lay,
Filling woodlands green with music,
Comes the welcome Children’s Day. [Refrain]

4 When all nature is rejoicing
Children’s voices, fresh and gay,
In the Savior’s praise are blending
On their welcome festal day. [Refrain]
