The Face Of Earth Is Smiling


The face of earth is smiling,
The bells of gladness chime,
For life is full of beauty
In golden summertime.

Refrain:
In golden summertime,
In golden summertime,
To sounds of June your voice attune,
In golden summertime,
In golden summertime,
In golden summertime,
To sounds of June your voice attune
In summertime.

The singing birds are gaily
Now flitting to and fro,
Their notes bright summer’s presence
Proclaim where’er they go. [Refrain]

The welcome fruits and flowers,
Which summer’s sweet days bring,
Fulfill in rich profusion
The promises of spring. [Refrain]

While sunny hours their bounty
Of joy and cheer impart,
Let God’s unfailing goodness
Bring summer to each heart. [Refrain]
