1 The waking flow’rs, the singing birds,
Proclaim the joyous spring;
The very air is full of praise,
Let happy children sing.

Refrain:
Sing praises to the loving Lord,
Who lives in light on high,
For all the tokens of the spring,
In earth, and air and sky.

2 The rippling laughter of the brook,
The blossom-laden trees,
The nodding blades of tender grass,
Their great Creator please. [Refrain]

3 The sower scatters precious grain
For reaping by and by;
Life’s springtime is its sowing time,
A sower, too, am I. [Refrain]
