Welcome Sweet Springtime, We greet thee in song,
Murmers of gladness, Fall on the ear.
Voices long hushed, Now their full notes, prolong,
Echoing far and near.

Balmy and life breathing breezes are blowing,
Swiftly to nature new vigor bestowing.
Ah! how my heart beats with rapture anew,
Earth's fairest beauties again meet my view.
Sing then, ye birds, raise your voices on high,
Flow'rets awake ye, burst into bloom!
Springtime is come and sweet Summer is nigh,
Sing then ye birds, O sing.
