When The Lavish Hand Of Summer


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.

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

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

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