1  In April time, in April days,
Then first the sunshine seems
As though its smile of morning rays
Had woke from happy dreams,
Unheeding all the fitful shower
That through the rainbow breaks,
The shining leaf, the beaming flower
In April time awakes,
In April time,
Sweet April time,
Bright April time awakes!

2  In April time, in April days,
When all seems glad and gay,
A little shade may dim the rays,
But soon 'twill pass away:
For oh! the joy of life's young hours
A sunshine always makes,
That brings the heart those shining flowers,
That April time awakes,
That April time,
Sweet April time,
Bright April time awakes!
