1 The spring-tide hour brings leaf and flow'r,
With songs of life and love,
And many a lay to cheer the day
In many a leafy grove.

2 Dews fall apace, --the dews of grace,--
On souls made sad by sin;
And love divine delights to shine
Upon the waste within.

3 As year by year the flow'rs appear,
And birds their praises sing,
Why not, my heart, bear well thy part,
In nature's joyous spring?

4 Lord, let thy love, fresh from above,
Soft as the south wind blow,
Till my heart bloom in sweet perfume,
And fragrant spices flow.
